Gail Kendall was raised in a small lumber town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Following her formal education at the University of Michigan (BSD) and Eastern Michigan University (MFA) she spent ten years working as an independent studio artist in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1987 she accepted a position in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she taught for twenty-four years.

In this two-day workshop, inspired by another time and place, you will learn masterful techniques in coil-building with soft clay for the best structural integrity and elegance. Using a historical pot as a reference, we will be set free to replicate the form's organic and fluid way without the challenges inherent to the conceptual/creative process. We will be left with a well-formed pot and technical facility so that later when that great idea for a unique creation appears in the mind's eye, it can be flawlessly executed.

Technical skills presented include:
* Rolling coils (no extruding allowed)
* Growing the form you are copying with ease
* Refining the surface with scraping, paddling, and darting techniques
* Using terra sigillatas and stain for the surface of the pot

Within the workshop, Gail Kendall will present her Pot Pointers (short) image lecture and show images from the cultures from which the pots we are copying were made.
