The Hudgens Center for the Arts says
In this 2-day workshop, Adam Field and Bryan Hopkins will demonstrate methods of working that have lead them to create distinct, yet complimentary, bodies of work.

Both Adam and Bryan share a love for surface manipulation and history while incorporating completely different sources, techniques and materials into their pots.

Field (biography below) will demonstrate his methods of Korean Onggi-making as well as wheel-throwing porcelain vessels and carving intricate pattern on a variety of forms.

Hopkins will share his techniques for making pots using a combination of wheel thrown and slip-cast parts, along with his ideas about designing pots with a single monochromatic approach in mind.

Field’s generous discussions about his time as a potter’s apprentice in Korea, personal aesthetics, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas.

Hopkins will share stories about his life and work from his early years as a mathematics major taking ceramics as his art elective to his current exploration with both high fire and low fire porcelain. He will discuss his unique perspective on working as a studio potter and what it takes to make a living.

There will also be informative discussions and exercises geared toward finding inspiration through personal exploration of one’s own practice, both in and out of the studio. Students are encouraged to bring their curiosity and creativity to contribute to the conversation.

Attendees will gain the skills and confidence necessary to explore form, texture, line, and color as a way to blend ideas and concepts with tactile discovery.
