Ceramics: Creating a Personal Ceremonial Vessel
With Lia Rosen August 20-24, 2012, Mon-Fri, 5 Days
Create a personal pottery vessel using basic clay skills and influences from pottery of the Southwest. Guest artist Lia Rosen will guide you through decorative processes she uses in her own work in New Mexico. She will be mixing mica into the clay body to replicate the sparkly micaceous clay local to northern New Mexico. Outdoor clay processing and firing, fun (and optional.) Lia will introduce Southwest pottery traditions through slides and examples from pueblo pottery the galleries will guide our work; students will create your own special vessel for use or decoration, to last a lifetime. No previous experience required.
Lia Lynn Rosen is a 30-year clay artist and licensed K-12 arts educator, integrating history, cultural literacy and experiential learning modalities. She studied ancient Southwestern pottery with art historian JJ Brody, and uses its inspiration in her teaching and art. She teaches publicly at her La Cienega studio, as Artist- in-Residence in the schools, and regularly, at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum.
I consider myself very lucky to have had wonderful guidance throughout my life, especially in the realms of art and spirit. A few of the many artists and teachers who have assisted me on my path include the late Don Hunt, and Dean Schwarz, Jerry Brody, Lynn Gottlieb and Malka Drucker. Ancient potters of many different cultures including the Southwest, North Africa and the Middle East continue to inspire my work. My students are a source of hope for the future; and the shards found on the ground here speak of a 2000 year old clay tradition that is ongoing. It’s my hope that my art, teaching and writings can cross the many boundaries that divide us and bring us into “Echad”/ the Oneness we all seek. Lia Rosen
