Ceramics Workshops with Ian Childers- THIS WEEK

Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 9:30am

Join us Wednesday - Friday, March 21-23, 2018 from 9:30am - 4:30 pm in the Ventura College Studio Arts Building, Room 102 for a Ceramic Workshop by Guest Ceramic Artist - Ian Childers

About the Artist: "My ceramic works are made on a pottery wheel out of porcelain, and fired with crystalline glazes. Through chemistry and a very specific firing schedule, I am able to grow two dimensional crystals on the surface of the pots. The forms are usually swollen vessels with narrow openings, giving the glaze on the pots a smooth and beautiful field on which to grow the crystals. I push the clay right to the brink of failure in order to create pots that stretch from narrow to wide. The objective in my traditional ceramic works is merely to create objects of beauty." - Ian Childers
