Jenny Hata Blumenfield
Extruder Workshop/Artist talk
Artist Talk: Friday May 19th 9PM (free)
Workshop: Saturday May 20th 2-6 PM
Jenny Hata Blumenfield creates hand-built ceramic forms using a range of ceramic techniques from the wheel, extruder, slabs and casting. Whether it is functional or sculptural, the work challenges the potential of the medium and the way in which people think of objects made in clay.
Friday evening Jenny will share her work and process as a thinker, maker, designer and artist. As the role of artist in our current climate has expanded beyond medium itself, Jenny will share the way she approaches its materiality and identity and what it has the potential to grow into.
Saturday she will conduct a workshop focusing on her expertise with the extruder. The workshop includes demonstrations focused on specific techniques applied to the extruder; how to build with extrusions, hands-on practice and once fired/extruded built piece you build and can take home.
