If you have been struggling to get height from your cylinders and to make taller forms, this workshop is for you! From clay preparation, to wheel set-up and hand positions, you will receive insights on how to improve your vertical throwing skills. You will learn through a hands-on format how to gain height and control over your pots, while working with stoneware clay, as your instructor will lead you through demonstration, presentation and one on one feedback at the wheel. Accepting the lessons your flopped pots can teach you… you will be encouraged as you are supported to push your throwing skills with the emphasis on the journey and not the destination. A wonderful workshop for anyone who has basic throwing skills.

Stoneware clay is provided.

Artist Statement:

After years of teaching art in Providence, RI I decided to recommit to my own artistic practice in clay, and I am currently in my second year as an Artist in Residence at the Worcester Center for Crafts. Like many artists my work is inspired by nature. Time walking in the woods, along the shore, or through the marsh provide me time and space for growth and insight. I am especially drawn to the patterns, colors, forms and contrasts in the landscape. My collection of work is an homage to place and my deep connection and love of being with nature. All my pieces are wheel thrown, hand decorated and glazed, and whether you hold a piece in your hand or see one on a shelf, meant to share that love of place.

BIO:

Cali holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Vermont and an MFA from UMass, Amherst. She has been teaching in high school and community art spaces for over 2 decades, and most recently completed a first year as an Artist in Residence at the Worcester Center for Crafts. She has exhibited her ceramics at a variety of arts festivals and galleries and her work has been collected around the world. She has also worked in and supported a number of arts, educational, and social justice organizations over the years and brings a lens of community and connection to her work.
