Functional pots including the handmade and industrially produced, which do their job well and look good, are always a pleasure to use.

The starting point for this porcelain throwing course is an examination of the formal relationships between pieces in a maker’s work. How the consideration of scale, shape, function and decoration can bring a sense of coherence to a body of work and make the impact of the group greater than the sum of its individual parts.

All of these elements are integral to the development of a maker’s voice.

During the course, with the support and guidance of the tutor, you will devise and work on individual projects making groups of pots that contain a visual narrative utilising the processes of throwing and turning.

As you will be working on primarily functional forms there will also be the opportunity to work on handles, lids and spouts.

The tutor will be on hand to demonstrate the techniques used in his own practice. In addition to the making there will be the opportunity to discuss various decorative and glazing techniques.

The tutor will provide source material as inspiration and there will be plenty of time for discussion of ideas between the tutor and individual students.

At the end of the course all participants will present a selection of work for an informal group review.

Monday-Friday 10.00 - 16.30 uur. Max. 10 students.

PORCELAIN with PATIA DAVIS

                     24-28 April 2017
  Vases, bottles, jars, teapots and more.


In her own porcelain practice, Patia’s work is about trying to retain the fluidity and softness of the thrown form. She is also interested in ‘freeing up’ from the symmetry of the wheel, for example by changing the line of form, giving the pot a lean, dimple or dent. These alterations are done both on and off the wheel, by removing the pot from its base, making a subtle softening of an edge, rim or shoulder, and base shape, before re-attaching it.  Patia is interested in the ‘feel’ of a piece when working out its ‘form’.

Patia will lead students to explore their own way of assembling their pots. Using component parts students will begin by throwing simple forms. And to help students move their ideas more fluidly - by ’Throwing off the hump’ they will be able to produce a series of pieces to make two and three part maquettes, component parts to make a unified whole. Students will be able to firm up or reject an approach before committing to larger pieces both by drawing on paper and working directly at the wheel. Students will be encouraged to decide how they work best… we are all different.

Patia will demonstrate her personal approach to slip decoration allowing students plenty time to decorate their pots too.
