WMPG is excited and privileged to host nationally know clay artist and educator Jason Briggs for a 2-day workshop at Calvin College.
Jason earned his MFA in 1999, majoring in ceramics and has taught at several universities over the last 15 years, in addition to teaching many workshops during that same period across the United States. He has won many awards and exhibited in numerous exhibitions and we encourage you to visit his website, www.jasonbriggs.com
, for complete biography, resume and examples of his work.
Jason works with porcelain to create intricate, detailed and visceral works of art which, in his words, "create an inherent mystery, something more enigmatic, eliciting from the viewer an unease, sensing something foreign yet familiar." You can read his full artist statement on his website.
In practical terms for this workshop, Jason will be working with both wet clay and greenware at various stages of dryness, demonstrating surface handling and detailing, craftsmanship, artistic concepts and precision in clay handling and creative methods of making. He will also present a lecture about his work during the Friday session at approximately 1pm.
AM coffee and light breakfast pastries provided. Lunch is not provided, a campus restaurant is available within walking distance of the Spoelhof building.
