Coming up... Visiting Artist Workshop

Kensuke Yamada: Figuring Out

During this two-day workshop we will create unique, original, story-telling figurative works. Stories can come from childhood tales, comic books, movies, and your own personal experience. Kensuke will show his hand-building techniques to make figurative forms. We will start this workshop with your stories and drawings, then transform them into ceramic figurative sculpture. Kensuke will demonstrate basic hand building techniques and work with students to make a ceramic figure in their own unique way. Some hand building experience is necessary and figure drawing experience helpful, but all levels are welcome.

Artist Bio:
Kensuke Yamada was born in Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan and received his MFA at the University of Montana. He received his BA at Evergreen State College in Washington. Kensuke’s exaggerated playful figurative work has been exhibited nationally and he most recently received the 2009-2010 MJD Archie Bray Foundation Fellowship Award.
