• Bradley Klem (I found inspiration while looking at vintage Meissen porcelain some time ago. One of my professors at the time, Liz Quackenbush pointed out some vases from the late 1800s that were decorated with 3-dimensional fruit and flowers rather than the typical 2-dimensional versions. I found these to be so weird and interesting and began considering ways to bring some similar aspect to my work.Afterward, my 4-year-old daughter was at home playing with her grocery store playset, and I noticed that she had small versions of plastic vessels that might be perfect! So I took them and made several press molds. Here are some examples of what those look like. sixthextinction

  • All kiln firings are done as a group as well. Kilns firings are organized and run by the Master Two students. It is their job to teach the undergraduate students the processes and ideas behind firing. Kilns are fired every Thursday and unloaded the following Monday. There is no formal workstudy program, but the idea is similar, that by the time of graduation students will have acquired enough experience to be able to find a job teaching at the numerous ceramic hobby studios throughout Japan. Here, undergraduates load a bisque kiln with small cups and bowls while the Master Two checks on them. (pottery

  • Zo Powell (studio alluvium | I moved to Minnesota in the spring of 2017 with my partner after we had completed a wood-fire residency together in Northern California. We moved with the intention of opening our own studio focused on the production of works made from clays and materials native to the state of Minnesota. Im happy to say that officially opened in Saint Paul last September; from this location Mitch and I will produce our own bodies of sculptural work, teach native material processing workshops, and collaborate on restaurant commissions..photo 1: Zo hand-crumbles raw, dry ball clay from the Minnesota River Valleyphoto 2: raw secondary kaolin with streaks of purple, yellow, and red ochre.kaolin

Im certainly excited to be a part of these take overs and I get the opportunity to show what normal days are like for me in the studio!

  • Austin Riddle (I started firing my work in soda while an undergraduate at the University of Utah. I quickly became interested in the process and also the results of firing with soda. The color palette that I had been shown at the beginning wasnt quite the palette I desired though. Throughout undergrad I formulated and tested multiple glazes and slips to achieve my ideal palette. Over years of tuning recipes, clay bodies and firing schedules I feellike Im finally achieving what I envisioned all those years ago. Here are some photos of spraying soda and how I pack the kiln using sagger walls to direct and control the flow of soda.achievement

  • Sasha Barrett (I started using the banding wheel to make pots out of necessity. I stopped working in a communal studio where wheels were provided, and at the moment couldn't afford to buy a wheel. I ended up falling in love with this new process. I realized it makes it easier for me to get the kind of result i was always searching for on a electric wheel. By starting out with a semi centered pinch pot and then using ribs to get my final shape, my pots became more fluid and casual. Having an uneven lip, or nice wavy texture is something i was always attracted to, but felt like on a fast spinning wheel it was hard to loosen up.handmade

  • We were saddened to learn about another loss for the ceramics community, with the passing of one of the masters in our field, John Glick last Thursday. A prolific potter, dedicated mentor to many apprentices and students, his work and writing has been appearing in Ceramics Monthly since 1972, most recently working with former editor Bill Hunt on a retrospective article in the October 2015 issue. Through his generosity and inventiveness, sense of humor, and wonderful work made over the course of five decades, Glick certainly left his mark on ceramics. He will be missed. CeramicsMonthly
