Nelson Clay Week

Embark on a transformative workshop led by the internationally renowned Jack Troy, designed to challenge conventional approaches to clay and pottery. Explore the art of throwing completely enclosed forms and shaping them into organic and geometric designs, blurring the lines between sculpture and functionality.
Through a process of discovery and manipulation, participants will scuff and "chase" the clay around its supporting air pocket, creating objects with varying tones and textures. This method enhances the internal space of each piece, promising a unique experience and subtle movement once fired. This dynamic class offers a memorable opportunity to expand your creative horizons, fostering a more original and diverse artistic vocabulary.
Hands-on class members should confidently throw bottles 6" and taller (intermediate level).
Jack Troy is a potter, teacher, and writer, from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, where he started the ceramics program at Juniata College and taught for 39 years. His two anagama kilns are fired three times per year. He wrote Salt Glazed Ceramics, Wood Fired Stoneware and Porcelain, two collections of poetry, and over 100 articles and book reviews for ceramics publications.

In addition to leading more than 260 workshops and visiting 13 countries professionally, he received NCECA’s [National Council for Education in the Ceramics Arts] Excellence in Teaching award in 2014. His article, “Courting Indigo” appears in the current issue of Ceramics Art and Perception.
