During the demonstration-based workshop weekend, George and Phil will dive right into direct procedures for creating works that are effective for the low-fire wood process. On Saturday, October 7, both artists will create work, answer questions from workshop students, explain their methods from aesthetic and educational perspectives, cover technical materials, tell stories, engage the audience and be entertaining. Following the Saturday portion of the demo workshop, they will will present slide shows and George McCauley will include his performance about GHOC Products.
During the Sunday portion of the demo workshop, George and Phil will assemble and complete works to demonstrate how they finish pieces. This will include surface
decoration and techniques, including underglaze methods, decorating on greenware and majolica on bisque.
Two weeks following the demo workshop, students have the opportunity to fire with George and Phil in the kiln they built at the Mahn Complex in Florence, MT. Participants should count on 3 days for the firing process and prepare for a fun and educational weekend. Workshop participants are invited to camp on Phil’s private property, and will have access to indoor bathroom and kitchen facilities.
