Flameware Workshop with Robbie Lobell

Flameware Workshop with Robbie Lobell

from 285.00

March 3 & 4 (2 day workshop)  12-7PM

This two-day hands-on workshop introduces participants to high-fire flameware for making flameproof cooking pots. The “flameproof” clay body is specially formulated to withstand thermal shock when in high-heat cooking environments – grill, broiler, pre-heated oven, wood-fire oven, stovetop, and more. We will explore the utilitarian necessities of a cooking pot used in these high-heat environments, and aesthetic considerations for a beautiful pot presented from the kitchen to the dining table. Participants can expect to make their own covered stovetop pot and an altered baking dish. Clay body, glazes, and appropriate firings for flameware will be discussed. 

Demonstrations, hands-on work, and lively discussion will give students a solid foundation for working with flameware and ideas to take shape in the form of clay cooking pots for slow food and a healthy world. This workshop is designed for students with a solid foundation in wheel-forming.

Experience: Students cannot be beginners.  Previous experience on the wheel and knowledge of beginner handbiuilding skills are required.

Artists talk: All workshop participants are encouraged to join Robbie's artist talk Friday night March 5th from 7-9.
