The 2011 Clay Arts, Utah workshop will feature a two day demonstration by Christa Assad. It will be held at the University of Utah on Saturday and Sunday, January 15 and 16.
Christa will demonstrate using the wheel to generate "building blocks" - simple forms that are later cut up and reassembled using a stiff slab construction method. She will discuss geometry, structure, ritual, design, and earning a living from making pots. Both functional and sculptural concerns will be addressed.
A flyer with more infomation and photos of Christa's work is attached.
