Session II Inventions with Clay focuses on building 3D with coil & slab, inspired by Leonardo.
Clay Science at the Museum combines the science of clay (its role in soil and geology) with artistic exploration and making art. We will search for clay in different soils, process clay dug from nearby strata, search for connections with clay minerals in the Museum exhibits, and create with clay form and color. Supported in part by a grant from NM Potters & Clay Artists.
