Throwing and Decorating Large Forms

Throwing and Decorating Large Forms image

David MacDonald is renowned for his large vessels, decorated with patterns inspired in part by ethnic groups in sub-Saharan Africa. In this workshop, David will demonstrate how he throws large forms and share his techniques for decorating a leather hard piece. You will learn how he uses historical influences while solving the challenge of creating patterned symmetry on a three-dimensional object.

“The principal concern of my art is the articulation of the magnificence and nobility of the human spirit and celebrating my African heritage. The material I use is clay. The primary vehicle for these expressions is the vessel.”
