Part II convenes at the KilnHouse at the Logan Center for the Arts for a look at the history of ceramic firing broadly and within the Bauhaus.
The evening begins with a tour of KilnHouse, a recently completed structure designed and built with students as part of Amber Ginsburg’s five year course series, “How to House a Kiln.” This hands-on workshop will delve into the intellectual history of pottery, glazing, and the connection between craftspeople, workshops, and industrial production. And, of course, we will use the kilns and see how glazing and firing processes transform clay into archival artwork.
FREE, this program can be experienced as a stand-alone event or as a compendium to Part I. Space may be limited, please register in advance.
