Annie Chrietzberg - Handbuilding Tips, Tools, and Techniques
Time & Location
About The Event
Annie Chrietzberg is a hand-builder, template-maker and glaze formulator with an established and ever-evolving body of tableware and kitchenware. Her current work explores a mix-and-match aesthetic composed in pattern and color. She makes functional pottery from textured slabs, using templates that she creates, playing with the relationship between shape and form, texture and pattern, and color combinations.
In her workshops, participants learn how to turn flat slabs of plain old clay into dynamic beautiful pieces that will enliven peoples’ tabletops, kitchen counters and cabinets, and even make unloading the dishwasher a joy! Annie demonstrates how she prepares the clay, imprints texture, composes with pattern, and uses templates for consistency in production. She discusses different ideas about creating pieces for daily use, development of form and the making templates, and her glazing theory. Most importantly, she shares the tricks of making, and the meticulous details of construction that she has honed in her own professional studio practice.
Annie Chrietzberg took her first ceramics class in 1991, and then went on to acquire both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Ceramics. In addition to making and selling work, she has written more than twenty articles for Pottery Making Illustrated, has taught as both an adjunct and a full-time instructor at the college level, and has given workshops around the country and in Canada.
