Mapping Glazes

porcelain artwork

This workshop will inspire and expand your approach to the relationship between form and surface. Using wheel throwing and hand-building techniques we will create a range of pottery forms from cups to bowls. With materials such as tape, latex and wax, we will strategize and map out our surface decoration to discover the possibilities in using glaze, not only as a color treatment, but as a palette ranging from matte to glossy. Through this workshop, you will learn many new ways to plan and apply glaze that will open new possibilities for your work. Basic knowledge of throwing and glazing is required.

Ruth Easterbrook holds a BFA in ceramics from Syracuse University and a MFA in ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. She spent many years learning through practice as a production thrower and assisting various artists. Ruth’s experience at renowned art centers such as Penland School of Craft, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Harvard Ceramics Program and, presently, as resident at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, PA have all contributed to her expertise and evolution as an artist. In 2020, she was awarded the honor of Emerging Artist for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) 2020, and was named a 2022 Emerging Artist in Ceramics Monthly.  Ruth’s work has been exhibited internationally as well as throughout the USA and is in the permanent collection of the Alfred Ceramics Arts Museum as well as other personal collections.
