THE ART OF THE RELIQUARY

APRIL 12 & 13, 2014

rel·i·quar·y: a container or shrine where relics or other precious objects are kept

In this hands-on workshop students will use personal imagery to create a precious object from porcelain and a reliquary to house it. Niches, doorways and windows will be used to alternately hide and reveal inner treasures.
Basic handbuilding techniques will be utilized as well as mark making and carving to help develop surface and narrative. The layering of glazes, slips, stains and oxides to achieve weathered antique surfaces in cone six oxidation firing will also be shared.

Please bring to class 2-3 items of personal significance to you and a willingness to explore.

Prerequisite: All levels welcome.

Two-person show with Laurel Lukaszewski & Novie Trump

Balance is defined as the state of equilibrium between opposing forces. The two artists in this show define balance within their own works, whether as a physical, psychological or metaphorical presence. Novie Trump examines the fragile balance between nature and man, illustrating the impact of what can happen when this balance is lost. Laurel Lukaszewski meditates on the nature of time, where everything is in flux, moving constantly between states of balance and imbalance.
