Chili Bowl Workspace Residency

Share

Country:

City:

The Chili Bowl Workspace Residency is an opportunity for potters who want to create their own work and participate in WSW’s Chili Bowl Fiesta, an annual fundraiser and our biggest community event of the year.

Each February, WSW sells over 1,000 bowls, mugs, and tumblers at the Chili Bowl Fiesta to support the operations of our ceramics studio. Pots are made throughout the year by resident artists, staff, interns, local artists, and our weekly clay study group. Every purchase of a pot comes with a helping of chili and cornbread donated by regional restaurants, plus we have raffles, music, and dancing! It’s a great event that allows our community to come together over handmade pottery and local food.

For the residency, we invite applications from artists in any stage of their careers and aim to provide artists with the time and space to live and work creatively. Awardees make 50 glazed or 100 bisqued bowls for the Chili Bowl Fiesta and also have time and space to create their own body of work.

Artists receive a thorough studio orientation and are expected to work independently, although studio staff is available to provide assistance. Deep technical assistance can be arranged for an additional fee. Artists are required to provide the expendable materials for their own project and can use WSW’s studio materials for the Chili Bowl pots. WSW maintains an inventory of supplies and materials that artists may purchase while in residence.

As of 2019, all workspace residencies are fully subsidized! This means that while artists are still responsible for their own travel, materials, meals, and other personal incidentals while in residence, WSW provides housing and studio space at no cost.

Artists Residency in Saint-Raphaël, France

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

How would living in another country inspire you? This flexible program is designed for the professional to leisure artists to live and create in France, in a fully equipped, significantly subsidized, ceramic studio. All arts are welcome.

The I.A.R.E studio located in France’s Var region, is nestled in the port town of beautiful Saint-Raphaël, and is near several other exciting places: the historic port town of Fréjus with its Roman ruins, the Côte d’Azur and a mountainous area called l’Esterel, where hikers, bikers and nature lovers thrive. Beach lovers will also be in sandy heaven, gazing at the red rocks and the intense azure skies of the Mediterranean.

With beautiful northwestern light from the wall of windows, artists are free to stretch out and explore as they create.  It’s easy to forget the practicalities we offer, like plenty of parking, nearby hardware store, organic market, supermarket, and bakeries within a 10 minute walk. The bus stop is on the corner, even though our studio is in a quiet, residential area where our students feel safe and stimulated to work at any hour.

Ceramicists Open Call for UNICA Mag Issue 2

Share

Type:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

SUPPLY UNICA is having an Open Call for Issue 2 of UNICA, a magazine that shares stories about how ceramics influence the world around us.

THEME:
CERAMICS & BAKING: THE PROCESSES
 

CONCEPT:
In our first issue, we explored how ceramics influence our lives through the theme of sharing food. Food speaks universally to us physically, symbolically, culturally, emotionally.

In UNICA Issue 2, we will explore the relationship between Ceramics & Baking by examining the parallels between the crafts. Baking and ceramics are universal and familiar practices that have been developed through history, shared cross-culturally, and utilize similar processes. By exploring the relationship between what goes into these crafts, our goal with this issue is to tell the story of 'how' before 'what'.
 

SUBMISSION:
We are looking for artists who want to share their unique approach to clay, who are inquisitive in the methods they use, who consider the materials they choose, and who make things by hand. Take us through the various stages of your work, and how you get to your final results.

A few questions we're curious about:

Where do your ideas stem from?

What materials do you choose? Why do you choose them and where do they come from?

What are your methods? How did you learn them?

Who do you make for? What is the experience that you want to create?

Participants will also learn maintenance and safe operation of equipment, and provide assistance to the Ceramics Facilitator in support of artists in residence utilizing the ceramics facilities.

Practicum participants will experience hands-on learning in support of artist projects in Visual Arts residency programs. Participants will receive mentorship to strengthen their technical and artistic knowledge, as well as communication, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills.

The regular course of study for the Ceramics Studio Practicum is 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Participants have the opportunity to spend one weekday focused onindependent study, while the other four weekdays are dedicated to supporting the Ceramics Facilitator, artists in residence, and regular departmental projects.

The program offers experience within a professional organization for those seeking careers as studio technicians or production assistants, or those in pursuit of graduate studies.
