With Andrew M. Kontrabecki
The Pinching technique is one of, if not the oldest methods in the world by which we have made Ceramic Vessels. Students will be shown how to modify this technique in order to create a simple ceramic piece which they will be taking home. Students will play with clay while enjoy Palette’s full experience with bites and selected wines!
Special note: Once formed, the ceramic piece will need to be left at Palette for approximately two weeks while they fully dried and fired. Palette staff will notify students once their wares are available for pickup.
Bites from the Palette menu and a wine pairing will be offered during the workshop.
Andrew M. Kontrabecki believes good functionality reaches beyond the function of wares, often changing the environment the ceramics are used in. His wares are imbued with a reductive style that isolates the purpose of the object while eschewing additional flourish and ornament, depicting the beauty of an object as it is and finding style in how it might interact with its surroundings. As house ceramist, Andrew leads the ceramics program at Palette, creating wares for the restaurant and Shop.
