Studio 5 Resident Kass O’Brien is back again with a workshop to learn decorative technique of layering colored clay into patters called Nerikomi.
Nerikomi (often referred to as “neriage”) is a decorative process established in Japan that involves stacking colored clay and then slicing through the cross section to reveal a pattern, which can then be used as an applied decoration. Students will be able mix colors into wet clay and create designs. We will be using slump molds to create a truly one of a kind piece.
The created piece will then be fired and each student will pick up a few weeks later. Attendees will be notified via email when the work are ready for pickup.
All materials will be provided. This workshop is limited to 12 students, so reserve ASAP.
The Arts Warehouse Bar will be open for Happy Hour of Beer, Wine, and Spiked seltzers for $6.

About the artist:
Kass O’Brien grew up in Pennsylvania, spending much of her childhood fishing and sailing on Lake Erie. Kass’s mother was a docent at a nearby art museum, which sparked her curiosity for art. She became active in the art community as a teenager, and later went on to receive a BFA at the Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her style focused on urban decay, inspired by steel mills along the Great Lakes.
When she moved to Florida, Kass became inspired by the local scenery and began considering different mediums, like ceramics, to express her love of nature. Whether it is seaweed that has washed ashore or a leaf that has fallen from a tree, she tries to transfer these moments into each piece that she creates.
