In this two day workshop the Polo Ramires will present ? to the group a paddle technique which dates back to Pre-Inca times. As in the traditional way, I use my hands and feet to create pieces. The materials and tools are simple. I use clay and rustic tools such as rounded rocks and wooden paddles. I do not start my work with an image in mind. As I begin to work on a piece, the shape emerges. I allow the clay, the earth, to speak to me.
In this workshop, I will demonstrate how to make a vase and a bird whistle; however, due to time limitations, the students will be able to begin just a vase. The usual time to complete a vase is at least one week. I will bring some of my own pieces in different stages of completion so that students can see the full process in just these 2 days.
