Ceramic Sculpture: Expressive Vessels, Forms, and Environments

A novel approach to working with clay and ceramics beyond classic pottery. This is a ceramic sculpture course for the unrealized or developing artist, homeowner, or design aficionado looking to enhance indoor or outdoor spaces with one's own ceramic installations or art, or anyone striving for an ideal in sculptural expression through one-of-a-kind vessels and sculpture.

Lectures and demonstrations will pursue traditional surfaces plus bold color concepts, relationships, and painterly approaches to sculpture and the ceramic surface. Also addressed will be new and cutting-edge concepts in alternative, sustainable engagements with the landscape inspired by the deCordova Sculpture Park. This spring, new techniques and themes will be explored using inspiration from deCordova’s concurrent exhibition, deCordova New England Biennial 2019. Contemporary avenues and modes of expression with are explored and encouraged and are drawn from many examples set forth by artists in the ceramic field as well as in other mediums. 

Workshop includes:

  • Three weekly hours of demonstration and instruction in developing ceramic sculpture techniques and meeting technical challenges from 10 am–1 pm.
  • Four weekly hours of optional open studio time for participants to focus on building their projects and receiving additional support from the instructor from 1–5 pm.
  • Individual guidance with personally-designed projects.
  • Introduction to new spring art installations in deCordova's 30-acre Sculpture Park and indoor galleries for inspiration.
  • Discussion of relevant art and ceramics history and concepts.
  • Related presentations on ceramic art and spatial design, color, and painterly techniques in ceramics, and alternative approaches and concepts to ceramics and ceramic "art" in the environment.
  • Discussion of the siting and context for outdoor ceramic sculpture.

Tools for building your work are provided. Participants are invited to bring their own hand tools as desired.

Firing fees and material costs are calculated by volume and will be charged at the end of each session. Open studio time is included in the price of the workshop (no discount for those attending only instructional hours).

Workshops are offered consecutively during the year and summer for those engaged in longer-term projects.

About Lincoln, MA
The Town of Lincoln was founded as a town in 1754 and is located west of Boston in Middlesex County. Lincoln was once nicknamed “Niptown” because when the town first began it was made up of pieces of land nipped from neighboring towns.

There is much to see in this old-fashioned little town for instance the Drumlin Farm Nature Center and the DeCordova Museum & Sculpture Park as well as the Thoreau Institute among many others.

Residents note that Lincoln is a quiet pretty place to be weather its to visit a museum or take a stroll in the woods all year round.
