Craig Rhodes earned a Master of Art degree in ceramics from Murray State University with postgraduate work at Southern Illinois University/Carbondale. His studio work is primarily functional in both porcelain and stoneware, and is designed around the Japanese notion of restrained elegance or “shibui”. Craig has had an eclectic and experimental relationship with clay, and in his current work, he is exploring abstract prehistoric symbols with a mandala motif, using multi-layered overglazes on stoneware. He has exhibited throughout the region, including solo shows at Ruth Baggett Gallery in Paducah and Schrode Art Center at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, in Mt. Vernon, Illinois in 2012. His work was also included in PSAD’s 2012 National Ceramics Invitational.
This hands on workshop is designed to introduce various techniques in the use of on-glaze applications. The workshop will be useful for artists who want to take advantage of the archival qualities of clay while transferring skills learned in using watercolor, oil, acrylic, etc. The workshop will also be useful for those ceramic artists looking to expand their repertoire by using on-glaze methods on glazed work. This will include how to use on-glaze for large murals, kitchen backsplash walls, wall hangings and more.The workshop will include demonstrations in tile making and silk screening of on-glaze, as well as various production methods and techniques in clay. Participants are encouraged to bring any visual references that they might want to transfer to clay using on-glaze.Likewise, those already working in clay are encouraged to bring work that is already glazed to be used for learning on-glaze applications. If one has a ready-to-use silk screen, they are encouraged to bring it to the workshop.
