Join OVCAG and the Workshop Committee, as we host Graham Hay, internationally known artist from Australia. Graham has won many international awards and will be attending NCECA this year in Louisville, KY.
Graham's art practice is based upon two simple things: Paper and clay. He creates and fires paperclay sculptures, and carves compressed paper sculptures. His ceramic paperclay work is an attempt to illustrate this on-going interest in the organization of the arts and crafts, and society. He is inspired by architecture and local plants, while trying to suggest the cycles, rigidities and dynamic nature of our society, and himself.
To satisfy an overwhelming demand for information and images, he created his website. Last year it received about a million hits (55,000 unique visitors). He receives numerous requests for classes and workshops.
Topics and techniques covered in this workshop include both variations of traditional ceramic practices, as well as methods borrowed from woodwork, metal work, leatherwork, papermaking etc:
