Nelson Clay Week

Discover what makes a round pot distinctive in this workshop, where the emphasis lies not only on the body of the vessel. Participants will explore the art of finishing a pot and imbuing it with character. Discussions will focus on recognising the subtle details that make an artist's work uniquely identifiable. Attendees will learn techniques for adding definition to rims, feet, handles, and more, and will have the opportunity to practise incorporating these techniques into their own creations.
--
Students should bring any pots or images that inspire them, throwing and trimming tools, and if desired/possible, leather hard pots for trimming or adding handles onto.
--
Suzy's work is based on vessel forms, and is usually functional. Working with a variety of clays and firing methods, taking the opportunity to wood and salt/soda fire when she can. She completed the Otago Polytechnic distance Diploma in Ceramics at Auckland Studio Potters in 2011, and has worked as a maker and tutor since then. Suzy has been involved in the New Zealand pottery community in a variety of ways over the following years, most recently joining the committee of the Waikato Society of Potters and teaching locally in Paeroa.
