Ceramics Workshop with Lorna Meaden

Ceramic artist and Art League School guest instructor Lorna Meaden fell ill last month and students were heartbroken when her workshop was canceled. But good things come to those who wait! The acclaimed potter is well once more and her class, entitled “Thrown, Altered and Decorated” is back on the school schedule. Starting May 20th, students will enjoy three intensive sessions with the Colorado artist. Meaden will be teaching her famed methods to get those creations as smooth and as beautiful as possible! This workshop addresses ways to create pots with a generous sense of volume and fluidity of line using wheel-thrown and altered porcelain. Meaden’s vocabulary of forms ranges from pots for daily use to atypical forms such as watering cans and spoons. Demonstrations include altering pots on and off the wheel, in addition to using drawn patterns to hand build spouts and handles. Surface treatment demonstrations consist of slip inlay, and glaze decoration using wax and latex. Interested artists can register here.

Meaden has a BA in art from Fort Lewis College in Colorado and an MFA in ceramics from Ohio University. She taught ceramics at San Juan College, Southern Illinois University and her alma mater, Ohio University. Her work has earned her numerous accolades, such as a Best in Show award at the 2006 Pottery National in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and three Juror’s Choice Awards in various shows over the past three years.

In March 2011, she was featured in Ceramics Monthly. Read the article here.
