With new techniques and unique tools Dianne Peach will demonstrate how quickly and easily large slab constructions can materialise.
Her architecturally inspired clean-lined and precise 3D work has been admired since the early 80s when she took to hand-building in porcelain after nearly two decades of wheel production.
Dianne’s methods of joining are a revelation and essential know-how when working with stiff rolled slabs. These methods are translatable to any joining situation, whether using slabs or wheel-thrown elements, and you are invited to apply them to your own “design & build” creations in your studio.
Dianne will use pre-rolled slabs that have dried to almost leather-hard and make a series of objects from concept through pattern-making, joining, “cutting & pasting”, to refining the finished object. She will demonstrate and give pointers on drying and firing to minimise warpage.
As a side-line interest Dianne will also demonstrate her version of making a length of chain without joining each link!
Come and see this generous and talented artist share her skills, whether you are a hand-builder or not, for the unexpected and the unbelievable may spark a new direction for your practice.
Dianne’s journey of slab work discoveries stems from a McGregor College Summer School in 1979 with Austrian ceramist, Kurt Spurey.
