In this intermediate to advanced workshop, students will take on two days of throwing and hand-building a unique hanging sculpture. Steve “the Darkman” Dark will teach students how to create an eyecatching creation, working with a combination of “parts”. Students will be led through demonstration and hands-on training. In addition to the building, Steve will provide instructions on how to assemble the sculpture once the individual pieces have been fired.

Day One – Handbuilding and Construction

Day Two – Continued Handbuilding and Application of Slip (pieces will be fired unglazed).

EXTRA!!! Steve will have $18 lighting kits available to turn your sculpture into a luminary masterpiece!

Pieces will be available for pick up at ESAC two weeks after the workshop has been completed. Students will be notified by Academy Director Reanna Watson.

“PERSONALLY THE MOST EXCITING ASPECT OF BEING A CERAMIST IS THE EXPLORATION OF PROCESS. AS A YOUNG ARTIST, I WAS INSTANTLY SEDUCED BY THE POWER OF THE POTTERS WHEEL AND HAVE BEEN EVER SINCE. I TEND TO WORK ON A SERIES OF 6 TO 8 PIECES AT A TIME, THROWING ON THE WHEEL THE PRIMARY FORMS AND DECORATIVE PARTS. WHEN THE CLAY IS AT JUST THE RIGHT STAGE OF DRYNESS I BEGIN THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS. TO THE HOLLOW SCULPTURAL FORM I ATTACH THE FINER DETAILS, CUTTING, PUSHING AND PULLING; ADDING SLABS, COILS, AND PULLED HANDLES UNTIL THE DESIRED FINAL  PRODUCT IS ACHIEVED.
