Sanguine

Sanguine

This juried exhibition celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Mississauga Potters' Guild and honours its longevity and growing connection to the cultural community in Mississauga. Sanguine is a synonym for ruby, the traditional gemstone to celebrate this milestone. Sanguine also refers to red iron oxide, a chemical used in clay and glazes. In its adjective form, it means optimistic, buoyant and spirited, which reflects the Guild members' positive growth and enthusiastic vision for the future. Ceramic artists in SANGUINE explore materials, processes and techniques to express their personal narratives, observations and experiences within this thematic framework. 

Annika will be displaying a new sculptural set called "Remnants".

1:00 PM13:00

Handbuilding Workshop at RAWspace

In this three-hour workshop, each participant will learn how to make fundamental forms with clay using the slab-built method. Each person will be given 3lbs of cone 6 mid-porcelain clay, and access to tools and underglazes to build and decorate their own unique Mug, Espresso Cup, Vase or Planter. Two or more pieces can be made, depending on the size. Surface techniques will be explored with underglaze and carving, to create beautiful AND functional pieces. There will be examples of finished pieces available to reference for your design choices. No experience required!

Sign up Here http://www.rawspace.info/february-4---beginners-pottery-slab-working--workshop.html

*To make the most of this workshop, please wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty and trim your fingernails! Long nails dig into the clay and mark up your work.

The pieces made during the class will be transported to Annika’s studio where they will be bisque fired, coated with clear glaze and fired to cone 6. The finished work will be returned to RAWspace, where they can be picked up 2 weeks after the class.

*Annika will do her best to ensure all of the pieces survive with fantastic results, but clay can be quite unpredictable and results may vary from example pieces.
