Katie Fee, Mudflat’s current Artist in Residence, will present a two-day workshop to demonstrate her wheelthrowing and carving techniques. Her demo will include:

  • How to throw and carve a variety of sculptural cups, plates, bowls, and large platters, plus how to trim the undersides of cups and bowls with sculpted, uneven rims
  • How to throw, build, and combine small parts to make scoops and other tools
  • How to throw, cut, and alter a large cylinder for large pitchers, jars, and flower vases, plus how to troubleshoot and design in order to fit thrown vessels and cut blocks/slabs together to build complex forms

And for a special bonus, Katie will work with participants to make a few handmade clay tools, including a wiggle wire, stamps, and a trimming wire.

 

At her Friday evening Tuttle Talk, Katie will show examples of her inspiration sources for her work and her process, and also discuss how one’s surroundings and experiences inform an artist’s voice.
