Please join us in October for a presentation by one of our members, artist and teacher Natalia Kormeluk. The title of her presentation is “Outdoor Clay Sculpture Installations: Field Totem Pole Project”.
Natalia has been a potter and Field School Pottery and Sculpture Instructor for well over 35 years. Although her work has essentially been functional and thrown on the wheel, she has worked on commissions for indoor and outdoor installations. For the 40th Anniversary of the Founding of the Field School, Natalia and her students completed an outdoor project consisting of nine clay sculptural columns 5 to 6 feet tall and 9 inches in diameter. She will talk about the specifics of the project as well as the ins and outs of designing, developing and installing an outdoor clay sculpture. She will show us slides of the columns as well as images of the construction process.
