Gauteng members will start the year with a well known international artist, Paul Young, presenting our first workshop – free to members.
Paul makes two major statements on his website:
“My aim is to fulfil a need, a desire and a passion for making”
“My hope is to convey a joy, narrative and intrigue for the viewer”
He has been working with clay for more than twenty-five years , being influenced mainly by English earthenware, slipware and European folk art.
His studio is a converted Victorian railway station in the Midlands from which he produces exciting decorative and domestic pieces which he shows at most of the major ceramic fairs in the U.K.
His work also features in many private and public collections, including the New York Metropolitan Museum.
Paul will start the workshop with a power point presentation giving a delightful insight into his “world of clay” and will then deconstrate his signature decorative work and domestic pieces which he will use to show us his slip trailing techniques.
This is certainly a workshop you will not want to miss.
