I was so lucky….I got to go to Medicine Hat for 10 days to attend a master class with renowned ceramic artist Brendan Tang for a Ceramic Master Class..There were 10 of us in the class-all experienced and we each worked on our own projects with Brendan guiding each of us. Brendan teaches at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Check out his work-you will be amazed at his work. http://www.brendantang.com/
Each of us came with an idea of what we wanted to work on…I don’t think anyone expected what happened in the end.I came with some vase drawings on cards, about a dozen of them. Brendan liked them and said do more..then he said make them bigger..I decided to make a collage of them, I color printed them and collaged them on a 22 inch sheet.
We had access to lots of molds as Medalta is known for using molds for making their pottery.. I was looking at my cards and thought….I could make this double necked vase!
I made it but didn’t exactly make it…Looking at it closel, so I decided to make it again Much better…more rounded and a different pattern on the surface. So now I’m excited to keep making these flat vases…I looked for textures to use for the sides.
