34a Sculptural Forms for the Garden
Donna Polseno - www.donnapolseno.com
August 19th - September 1st, 2012

Handbuilding and sculpture. For all


Handbuilding forms from Galestro, a Tuscan Terra Cotta clay, perfectly suited for outdoor pieces will be the focus of this class. We will explore various hand building methods to make figurative forms, large bas relief tiles or personal interpretations of open forms for planters.
Techniques included will be slab and coil building and developing skills for bas relief carving and sculpting, versatile ways for both artistic expression and useful projects.
Surrounded by a world of sculpture, flowers, and terra cotta we will be easily inspired to creative ideas.


Cost 1.480
Includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials and firings.
