Old Church Pottery Show

Old Church Pottery Show The Art School at Old Church Pottery Invitational
(10)

The Pottery Show at The Art School At Old Church was born out of a powerful friendship between the school’s founder, Mikhail Zakin, and her dear friend Karen Karnes. Karnes was originally the late Mikhail Zakin's pottery teacher and is now a renowned and internationally exhibited ceramic artist. Since its inception, Karnes has curated this invitational as a gift not only to her friend but also to the community of potters who gather each year as family in support of the Art School and each other. The show is now curated by Karen Karnes and co-curators Chris Gustin and Bruce Dehnert.

This sculptural piece “all that remains” is one of the very first pieces I made that led to my current body of work. It’s cone 11 porcelain and sand, resin, and gold luster. #mikestumbras

Slip Trailed Teapot by Mike Stumbras

A freshly slip trailed canister style teapot. Teapots are one of my favorite things to make because of the potential for variety and for the number of choices one can make while assembling them. I hand build my spout so it doesn’t warp from throwing with my vitreous clay body. #mikestumbras #teapot

Some in-progress pots ready for water etching. I paint a shellac resist on the surface of bone dry porcelain and after it cures overnight, I rub it down with a wet sponge. This erodes wherever the shellac isn’t and leaves a sharp line for glaze to break on.

Hi all! I’m Mike Stumbras and I’m honored to be doing a takeover of this page for the day. I’m a ceramic artist based out of Kansas City working from 323clay. I make wheel thrown pots inspired by 18th century European production ware and contemporary studio pottery. I’m posting in anticipation of an upcoming online workshop with The Art School at Old Church where I’ll talk about my process with special attention to slip trailing and water etching. I love my sweet dachshund-lab, Sam, my wife Caitlin Stumbras, and of course, making pots.

I really appreciate a quiet pot with some depth and that’s what I strive for with my work. I try to strike a balance between interesting forms and subtle surfaces. I fire my smaller pieces in an electric kiln and my larger pieces in a gas kiln and I play with alternative/primitive firing methods as well. I primarily use terra sigillata, which is a super fine slip on all my surfaces. I’ll be speaking to the basics of terra sig in my workshop - what it is, how to make it at home, troubleshooting and different applications.

05/27/2020

I work with a black/brown stoneware clay from laguna called B-3 brown. It’s a cone 5 clay that I fire to cone 3 instead. Like all ceramicists, I absolutely love the freshness of leather hard clay- my method of building is the coil and pinch method. It is important to me that my pieces read as handmade and I leave imprints from my fingers and hands as I build. I use the black clay because when I layer up the terra sigillata (which I’ll discuss in my workshop on Sat, May 30) and slips I like to have the dark, rich clay poking through. To achieve the designs in my work I cut the pieces apart as I build and put them back together. #candicemethe #candicemetheceramics #theartschoolnj #tasoc #createfromhome #learningathome #claywithme #pinchpots

In case you missed the first post, again my name is Candice Methe and I’m taking over The Art School at Old Church's feed today to share my work and my process. I’ve been working in clay for 22 years now and I started handbuilding about 7 years ago when I was a grad student at the University of Minnesota and it keeps getting better! Handbuilding is when I finally fell in love with the material- working in this way gives me so much more freedom to explore and play. The more I make the better and more interesting the ideas which keeps me excited and engaged and wanting to spend my days in the studio. #candicemethe #candicemetheceramics #tasoc #oldchurchpotteryshow #pinchpots #createfromhome #learningathome #studioartist @ Red Lodge, Montana

Good morning! My name is Candice Methe and I’ll be taking over the @theartschoolnj IG feed today to talk about my work and my process. I will be teaching a virtual workshop on Saturday, May 30th from 1-3 through The Art School at Old Church. I’m really excited!

I would consider it a two for one workshop because I’ll be showing you how I build one of my pedestal bowls with a design cut in and I’ll also be discussing the basics of terra sigillata, applications and show you a quick, fun and easy way to make it at home! There’s some room left in the workshop - $40 - for two riveting and educational hours. ⬇️

The Art School at Old Church is near and dear to my heart! I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Old Church Pottery Show for the past three years and I have had the best time making new friends, meeting up with old ones for some quality time and whiskey, and of course, fondling all the gorgeous pottery! eating yummy Korean food and Gail and Michael! I could go on and on but I’ll be posting all day..... here is a beauty that was @oldchurchpotteryshow last year and was scooped up to go live with @mudlilydesigns.

The Art School at Old Church

We are taking this special day, #GivingTuesdayNow, as an opportunity to kick off an ambitious 10-day, $10,000 campaign for The Art School at Old Church. #GivingTuesdayNow was started by the same folks who created #GivingTuesday, which happens each year during the holiday season. Here’s their message behind it. We couldn’t say it better ourselves:

“We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.

“#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

“Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.”

To make a tax-deductible donation to The Art School at Old Church and help us keep inspiring through the joy of art once we get on the other side of COVID-19, please visit tasoc.org/support.
