JEFF SHAPIRO - ACCORD STUDIO WORKSHOP - Saturday June 23rd
The 1 day workshop begins at 9:30am with a general description of the 2 wood firing kilns that the artist Jeff Shapiro uses for his work. We will discuss loading, glazing, and firing options for the wood kilns. The remainder of the morning will be comprised of discourse and demonstrations and then participants will begin working with 5 pounds of clay from the studio to make a single piece for the firing. This is not a firing workshop, unless a group makes plans in advance to do a firing in the small wood kiln. Neither of the kilns will be fired during the workshop, but people may visit during the firing at a later date.
My wife Hinako will prepare lunch and there will be a discussion about the relationship of food and vessel. The afternoon will be utilized to complete the piece started in the morning. The day ends at 4:30pm with a final discussion and tea.
