Event Description

Sharif Bey, visiting artist from Syracuse, NY

Sharif infuses the objects he makes, both ceremonial and functional, with his own cultural and political voice. He returns to his native Pittsburgh to teach Object & Identity on Saturday & Sunday, January 26—27.

Students in this two-day workshop will work with clay and mixed media to create sculptural objects that challenge and expand notions of object, identity, ritual, function and adornment.  Pinch, coil and simple molds will be used to construct objects of cultural, historical, political and personal meaning,  Then students will further develop unique surfaces by layering traditional and commercial finishes, including glazes, oxides, slips and terra sigillata, with non-ceramic materials, such as nail and shoe polishes, paste wax, permanent markers, acrylic paintsm spray paints and polyurathane.

Tuition: $200

Materials fee: $15
