    In this multilayered workshop, Mark Arnold will teach students to create molds to be used in combination with wheel thrown and handbuilt cla y forms. After using press molds made of wood and plaster, the wheel will then be employed as a tool to assemble the pieces. Mark will guide participants to explore a variety of utilitarian forms, from cups to vases, and discuss how to use carving, inlay and terra sigillata as surface decoration. The result of this exploration will be to make each piece unique to the individual artist.  

    Mark Arnold was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Mark is currently an artist in residence at Pocosin Arts School of Fine Crafts in Columbia NC. Before ceramics Mark traveled the country for about 10 years riding BMX bikes. In doing so he had the opportunity of living in multiple cities that are influences of his utilitarian pottery today. After an accident that kept Mark on crutches for about 6 months, he started taking ceramics classes at a community college and shortly after transferred to Edinboro University where he received his B.F.A in ceramics. In the spring of 2017 Mark received his M.F.A. from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville.
