Creatively Coming Together


So you’re are done with school, what’s next!? What are the challenges? Do you go to a residency? Do you go to graduate school? How do you make money and still maintain a studio practice? This panel is designed to help you understand all the possibilities after school and how to keep pushing to develop your art. In this panel Kevin will present his journey in clay and life as an educator, Travis will discuss the path to his current position as Programs Manager at Touchstone Center for Crafts, and Taylor will describe her practice of navigating the ins and outs of galleries, workshops, and staying connected. Although the three of us have traveled vastly different paths, we were brought together through a desire to build a community of like-minded individuals.  We want to share the importance of developing a network outside of your personal practice and why we came together to start the Ceramic Sculpture Culture Collective.

Sculpting in porcelain is not easy, especially when you work on delicate features such as figures and flowers. Join ceramic sculptor, Taylor Robenalt, for a two day workshop that will help you manipulate this fickle medium. All skill levels are invited to spend time learning how to create sculptures using solid, coil and slab construction.  We will learn how to make a bust with a personal narrative and learn how to refine your porcelain surfaces using simple tools. The finishing process of using under glazes and CONE 6 glazes and lusters will also be taught. Students will explore ideas to create and discover personal metaphors in their work. In doing so, they can discover the meaning, content and power behind their art. An informal critique for each student will be held on the last day.
