  • 2019 Summer Arts - Maggie Jaszczak

    Building the Form

    June 24 - 28, 2019

    Medium: Ceramics
    Level: All Levels
    Tuition: $650
    Lab Fee: $60

    This workshop will focus on hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques.  Students will turn simple 2-dimensional shapes into complex 3-dimensional forms using plywood cut-outs both as slump molds as well as templates for bisque molds.  We will cover basic wheel-throwing, as well as throwing of simple forms to be used off the wheel as building blocks for form.  In addition, we will explore decorating techniques for the green-ware stage, including slip and terra sigillata, and discuss decorating options for bisque- and glaze-work.  While this class will be loosely based in utility, all techniques are easily extended to sculptural forms.

    Maggie Jaszczak is a potter and mixed media artist originally from Ontario, Canada.  After completing her undergraduate studies in Canada she received her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Minnesota in 2013.  She has participated in ceramic residency programs at the New Taipei Ceramics Museum in New Taipei City, Taiwan, the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT, Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, CO, and Medalta Potteries in Medicine Hat, AB.  She and her husband recently moved to Minnesota after completing a three-year residency at Penland School of Craft in Penland, NC.
