Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I want to expand my skills and expression in stoneware clay. I will be spending a week with Guillermo Cuellar in a practical ceramics workshop making functional pots and experimenting with new techniques and ideas. Following the completion of the workshop, I will spend two weeks in the studio, practicing what I've learned and developing a new body of work. Measurable outcomes: I will complete the workshop. I will learn 4 new techniques and practice them for two weeks. I will make at least 20 finished stoneware pots, using the techniques learned in the workshop. I will enter some of the pieces in the Grand Marais Art Colony's Members' Show in October, 2015.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I completed the workshop. I learned six new techniques which I practiced for two weeks after the workshop was completed. I made 25 finished stoneware pots, using the techniques I learned from Guillermo Cuellar's workshop. I entered some of them in the Grand Marais Art Colony Members Show this fall.
