Your Edge and Beyond
June 22 thru 30, 2006
How far would you go? Here's a chance to take it to the limit. Each of us has hopes and aspirations for our work which will require further developments of technique and content. This workshop will help you locate these hopes and aspirations and ways to achieve those longed for developments of content and expression. Romberg's workshop uses the techniques and philosophies of Raku as well as explorations in the natural canyon land environment to develop and expand the content of your work. Daily demos, slides, discussions. Hand building and wheel thrown facilities and demos. 24 hr. studio access.
Raku: Color and Firing
July 6 thru 13, 2006
Explore multiple forms, layers and processes of creating, decorating and firing Raku. Experiment with new surfaces, colors and reduction techniques. Raku is often presented as "the accidental." This workshop will develop new techniques for using glazes, color, firing and reduction to develop a more expressive palette in your raku work. There will be extensive experimentation with new glaze formulations, application and firing as well as demonstrations to explore composition and expression. Hand building and wheel thrown facilities and demonstration. Slides: historic and contemporary. 24 hr. studio access.
Burst the Boundaries
August 10 thru 17, 2006
This is a chance to explore your work and push its limits freely. An exciting and essential element of artistic expression is moving beyond the boundaries of expression and technique that seem to limit our development. This workshop will present ways to locate and push those boundaries out to achieve new sources and means of expression. Raku will be the vehicle for this exploration although other elements of art will be used such as drawing and sculpture. Demonstrations will present new ways of construction and firing in clay. Begin with an exploration of possibilities in form, surface and firing. Immerse yourself in Raku's philosophy and environment. Then proceed toward the refinement of the newly discovered elements to move beyond your current expression. Daily demos, work sessions and discussion. 24 hr. studio access.
For the past 30 years Jim Romberg has presented workshops in various aspects of raku and stoneware ceramics, from wheel work, hand building, glaze formulation, thru application and firing. These workshops not only deal with the technical and process aspects of ceramics, but also with the investigation into content and expression. Since retirement as Professor Emeritus of Ceramics, Jim is available year around to conduct short and long term workshops.
Jim has presented over 100 workshops internationally, and is well known for his personal style in communicating new developments in ceramics, expansive thinking in arts criticism, as well as helping students reach beyond their supposed limits in developing their own work.
