Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) is pleased to present “Ceramic Transformation Vessel” with Bob Dix — a two-session Craft Series Workshop on Thursday, June 3 and 17, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at SVMoA’s Hailey Classroom. The Museum’s 2020–2021 Craft Series Workshops are generously supported by Heather Horton and Deida Runswick.
In this class, students will build a clay container by hand. Inside the container they will place a handwritten paper with something they are ready to get rid of, let go of or move on from in their lives. The paper will burn up in the firing process, and students will be left with the vessel they created that represents change. The first night of the workshop, students will focus on slab and coil pot construction; on the second night, students will glaze their pieces.
Bob Dix earned a bachelor’s degree at San Francisco State University and an MFA at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He has exhibited his work widely in California, Nevada and Idaho at institutions including the Headlands Center for the Arts, San Francisco Artspace, the San Francisco Art Institute, the Richmond Art Center, the San Jose Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
“I am excited to have Bob Dix back to teach a hand-building ceramic class,” said Jeanne Knott, Visual Arts Class Assistant at SVMoA. “Ceramics are his true passion, and his enthusiasm and ideas always make for a fun class.”
