Hohokam with Katheryn Corbin

Two Saturdays, July 20 & 27, 2019, 10 am-11:30 am

Fee: $30/ $25 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. For information on future sessions, sign up for our e-list. Advance registration required.

Join ceramic artist Katheryn Corbin for our summer sawdust firing. On the first Saturday, learn to set-up and pack the “kiln”—a metal trash can filled with sawdust—with your bisque-fired pieces. The smoke from the smoldering fire blackens the pots, leaving them with a subtle, shining finish. Return a week later, once things have cooled, to open and unload the can and collect your pottery. Fire the planters and vessels made in previous workshops at Lynden, or bring in your own bisque-fired work. When registering, you will need to specify the dimensions and number of pieces you are bringing (maximum two).

About Katheryn Corbin
Katheryn Corbin is a painter, potter, and figure sculptor. Pots and figures have both been a part of Corbin's studio practice and teaching. Drawing and painting are important elements in each discipline, and her clay pieces are informed by the complementary processes of working with clay as vessel and as figure. Corbin is interested in historical developments in clay and variations across cultures, and she often explores different firing techniques and glaze surfaces. She has taught at all levels from elementary school through adult at the Evanston Arts Center in Evanston, IL; the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design; and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
