The Vessel as Sculpture
Sharon invites us:
In this workshop we will be exploring the vast sculptural potential of the vessel form. Participants will be asked to push both their technical abilities and their thought processes in order to create a unique vessel that truly makes a personal statement. During the course of the three days, Sharon will give demonstrations of building techniques, work with students one on one, and lead them on short thought exercises to stimulate ideas.
