Nature is composed of mechanisms

with Kurokawa Toru 黒川 徹

31st March - 1st April 2023

In this two-day workshop, we will learn and practice rebuilding organic forms from the logic of the naturally occurring mechanism. We will experience layering the clay and creating a “membrane” through the coiling method, mangling with the modeling mechanisms: expansion, distortion, twist, and inversion, to create mathematical forms like a spiral, torus, the Möbius strip, etc.

*Conducted in English
*Tuition includes: general studio materials, 1 bag of black clay & firing services.
*Finished works can be collected approximately 5-6 weeks after the completed workshop at the studio.
