Making Expressive Pots with Texture, Volume and Fluidity with Andrew Linderman

In this workshop, Andrew Linderman will share his making processes, and we will practice techniques to create lively textures and build new forms from combined wheel-thrown shapes.

Date & Time

Jul 14, 2024, 6:00 PM – Jul 19, 2024, 12:00 PM

Adamah Art Studios, 4681 Co Rd ZZ, Dodgeville, WI 53533, USA

About the Workshop

Participants will explore a variety of wheel throwing techniques while making simple and compound forms, including strategies to throw more efficiently, using a throwing stick to shape vessels from the inside out, adding and maintaining exterior textures on open and closed forms, combining and altering multiple wheel-thrown shapes to create new forms, and creating pots that are “full of breath”. This workshop is intended for people with some throwing experience.

Adamah will provide: 

  • 50lbs of stoneware clay. Porcelain and additional stoneware will be available for purchase. 
  • Throwing sticks
  • Bisque firing during workshop
  • Basic throwing and hand-building tools

Participants should bring:

  • Any personal tools they wish to use during workshop
  • Boxes and wrapping for any pieces you make during the workshop

Artist Statement:

The pots I create are intended to bring artwork into daily living while enhancing the interactions between food, drink, people, and their community. As a craftsperson, I endeavor to create highly utilitarian wares for people to use, touch, see, and experience on a consistent basis.

My forms are loosely inspired by the natural world. Just like all oak trees are distinguished from any other species in the forest, each tree is also unique unto itself. I find beauty in the diversity that handcrafted works bring into our assembly-line culture.

The realm of function gives me parameters in which I can explore the purpose and utility of each form and how handmade ceramics augment everyday experiences. By considering how the forms are interacted with I strive to help the user get more satisfaction from commonplace occasions.

Food and drink sustain our bodies, but the camaraderie, empathy, and conviviality of good company sustains our souls.  Handcrafted utilitarian wares augment the nourishment of food and companionship at a meal or with drinks, and adds a deeper layer of care and compassion. My pottery ventures to make not only the profound moments, but also the mundane actions of daily living, more artful, cherishable and fulfilling.
