Upcoming Ceramics Classes
Instructor: Jacob Troester
Participants will learn a variety of surface treatments including airbrushing, mono printing, latex and paper masking, and textural application, which can be applied to each individual part. Although each participant’s parts will not be finished firing before the end of the two-day class, instruction will be given on how to assemble the many parts at home, using an industrial strength epoxy along with a wall-hanging device.
When completed, these wall-hung ceramic collages possess a truly unique physical depth and richness in surface decoration. Skills learned in this class are also great additions to other sculptural and functional approaches to creating with clay and could fit in well with any artist’s individual practice.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Troester’s most current work is heavily influenced by his travels through the American West and borrows color pallets and land mark features from these vast spaces. Merging these features with imagery from a personally re-imagined, modern take on tropes found in classic American Western narratives, the result are tableaus of a contemporary Western odyssey. Methods used to construct and decorate these tableaus depart from most traditional approaches to the ceramic medium and lean heavily on methods and approaches found in printmaking processes.
