Workshop

JJ PEET: Contemporary Ceramics: Clay as Direct Material

August 18 – 29, 2014

Anderson Ranch Arts Center
5263 Owl Creek Rd
Snowmass Village, CO

From brain to hand to object, clay is one of the most direct materials on the planet for making art. While establishing an understanding and appreciation of ceramic process and history, we re-examine ceramics as a direct material in today’s contemporary art world. Through construction of objects along with rigorous individual and group discussions, we challenge the way we look at and think about ceramics. In the workshop, JJ Peet teaches that ideas are as important as form and there are no limitations on the models created by our own concepts. Clay is the primary medium, but all are encouraged to consider other sculptural elements to integrate into our final pieces.
