21+ Night: Functional Clay Creations with Eva Conrad
In this 21+ Night workshop, we will make object and function specific vessels. Students will be asked to bring in a few objects that we can use as centerpieces to our designs. We can brainstorm functions we are looking to fill in our lives and create based on need. We will be pinching and coiling, and soft slab building; covering some fundamental hand building skills in clay. Students will have the chance to choose a glaze to finish their work with.


Eva Conrad is an artist whose work is part of the current resurgence of the pattern and decoration movement, and intentionally straddles contemporary art and craft traditions; through an interest in the history of creating beyond necessity. They weave patterns in and out of their ceramic sculpture and painting repetitively as meditation on systems of being. Her work emerges in the world as a reflection on beautiful moments of attentive introspection, intuition and curious play amid seemingly rigid binary systems.
