Bill & June Vaughn Workshop

$70.00$130.00

Potters from Sonora California recently relocated to Wisconsin

For 53 years these self-taught artists, Bill and June Vaughn have created a unique style of pottery. The heart and soul of their art comes from the vital roles that they each play in the formation of every piece.  Bill throws inventive shapes and June carves and decorates in what has been called a tribal art style.  Their work also incorporates mixed media including stones, shells, metal feathers, and found objects.  Over the ears their style has evolved from functional stonework to a unique high-art design that is collected internationally.

Participants will get the opportunity to work directly with Bill and June to learn their techniques in this hands-on workshop. Bill will demonstrate his unique techniques of throwing upside down and throwing dry. You will learn to make lighter pots and gain the control to create more challenging forms. June will demonstrate how she works cooperatively with Bill by adding her beautiful carvings and drawings as well as hand built wings, lids and found embellishments to complete each piece. Each participant will receive up to 12lbs of cone 10 Raku clay and access to a potter’s wheel as needed. Participants will work cooperatively teaching one another as they implement the newly learned techniques. We will bisque your pieces and leave the glazing and finishing to you.  Non-CCC members/students who want to return to glaze their pots at Cream City Clay can purchase an additional day to work for $35.
