Nelson Clay Week

Embark on a journey of discovery in this workshop with Dorothy Waetford, where participants will delve into the art of loading and firing a wood-kiln. Over the course of two days, explore the intricacies of kiln loading, discussing techniques for optimizing flame flow and kiln performance. Following this, engage in a three-day, two-night firing process, learning to harness the unique qualities of flashed, ashed, and flame-smothered pottery. -- Please bring: Fine paint brushes for shellac work, 2 or 3 bone-dry pots - if you cannot travel with bone dry pots you can make something at Potters Square in the days prior.
Dorothy lives in Matapouri, a small coastal community in Northland, Aotearoa New Zealand. Her ceramic work is produced primarily for group shows featuring Māori and or Indigenous artists such as Ngā Kaihanga Uku (collective of Māori clayworkers), Te Atinga (the contemporary Māori Visual Arts network) and in support of iwi arts initiatives such as the Toi Ngāpuhi Art Exhibition and Te Ahuareka Ngatihine Festival.

Inspired by growth, adaptation and evolution, her work tends to be figurative and sculptural, personal reflections of cultural identity.
