Participants will learn the basics of hand building with clay including pinching, coil building & slab work. Participants will explore both sculptural and functional form. Participants should either bring their own tools or plan on purchasing a kit from Peacock Clay on the first day of class. Clay will be provided.
About the Instructor: I grew up in Indiana and earned a BFA at Murray State University in Kentucky. From there I lived in the South Carolina Low Country and tropical, festive Key West. Each of these places has influenced my art perspective.
This is what I believe about art. There are no mistakes. There are no rules. And the process of creating art is most important. Color is also important, but black and white is dramatic.
This perspective is reflected in my whimsical, imaginative collages and sculptures. My reoccurring characters, often with funny and quirky titles, allow your thought to create their own story. Sometimes surprising, always colorful, my artwork hopes to bring a smile.
NEW INFORMATION: As of April 1, 2016, Peacock Clay Collaborative is no longer located in The One Eleven Building. So, while the Hand Building Pottery Class is offered through Art Mundo, it will be held at Peacock Clay’s new location, a mere stone’s throw away at 203 North Second Street, the former location of Beads & Baubles and across the street from the Taco Dive restaurant. Peacock Clay looks forward to offering the best of clay experiences through Art Mundo in our new location. Click here for map.
