Workshop: Deb Schwartzkopf, "Well Served" in France


  • Saint Raphael, France (map)

Led by Seattle-based studio potter, instructor, and inspiring artist Deb Schwartzkopf, this exploratory workshop is for everyone working in clay with an interest in tableware. Come and discover the many ways functional forms can be pieced together from thrown and hand-built parts.

Let’s explore tableware. Come design and create your own place setting! This hands-on workshop is a guided, creative time. We will start with a Plate, Bowl and Cup… And then move into vases, pitchers, and platters! Identify and investigate the relationships within and between different forms. How does the plate meet the table? How is the meal framed? Is the handle comfortable? What gesture are you capturing in your pitcher? There are so many elements to consider in the creative processes of designing and making. Materials, firing and weekday lunch included.
