Participants in this workshop will learn simple hand building techniques enabling them to build ceramic bust forms. They will explore their ability to develop content and build forms that represent the human embodiment of complex emotion. There will be ample discussion about surface considerations specific to the bust and various sculptural forms.
Besides working with clay, we will do exercises in free writing as a way to create new ideas for our work. This workshop will offer several ways to help you open up to thinking about the development of work through form, technique and idea. Melisa’s intention is that you will leave this workshop with a better understanding of what guides your work as well as the ability to communicate through your work. The workshop is open to all levels of experience although basic hand building skills are useful.
Melisa Cadell works in multiple mediums and explores the complicated thoughts that drive humans behavior. Her clay work is most notably characterized by its willingness to question beliefs and actions of the contemporary world. Join us during this class to work through your ideas and build your skills or just to hang out with other sculptors and make work. Melisa has taught sculpture and 4D at East Tennessee University and figurative ceramics at Appalachian State University. She has taught numerous workshops in the south and northeast.
