FINDING THE BEAUTY IN IMPERFECTION

Akira Satake will lead a hands on workshop involving both the handbuilding and throwing techniques he uses to make his tea ceremony bowls, yunomi, teapots, ikebana vases, sculptural objects and more.

Participants will learn how to create rich surfaces inspired by the natural world. Some techniques that will be demonstrated are:

* brushing kohiki slip on clay slabs and stretching the slabs to crack and distort the surfaces
* applying a coating of clay mixed with sand onto the surface of wheel thrown or hand built pieces and then altering them
* mixing air and other materials into the clay body and then tearing off the clay and/or cutting with a wire to create the shapes

He will share his experience and knowledge in a discussion of the Japanese aesthetic. Participants will gain insight into finding the beauty in imperfection, the meaning of "wabi-sabi," and the importance of "ma" -- the space in between.
