Free Sunshine Cobb Workshop at UOP

This is looking like it's going to be another a fun  workshop hosted by UOP in Stockton next week. It showcases Sunshine Cobb, sharing what can be done with a few basic hand building techniques as things are stepped up to a more advanced level.

I've been enjoying getting a preview of Sunshine's style of work while passing through the ceramics lab at the University of the Pacific after hours. (Her approach is very, very neat.)

What I've been seeing are functional forms created using coils and slabs. Common techniques, but with uncommon results.
I enjoy the honesty of form that Sunshine develops out of the processes that are used and after looking at her surfaces that are coming out of the kilns, I'm already daydreaming what I can do with what she's offering up.

This is a free event so it's defiantly worth the trip from out of town.
It's Tuesday the 4th, 10 to 5 and Wednesday the 5th, 10 to 5... come and go as you please.... you just can't beat that.

Wish I was close by, handbuilding is right up my alley.

I was just looking at some of her cups on the TRAX website. Would love to see her in action.
