Ceramicist Scott A. Leipski creates work from recurring memories and an obsession with his own youth. Using hand-built techniques, bold colors, and nontraditional ceramic textures, Leipski aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia, whimsy, and the surreal. For Leipski, exploration is an essential aspect of making, and his inherent curiosity is evident in his toy-like recombined cast forms and imaginative surfaces. 

Join us for a one-day workshop to learn how Scott's creates his wall tiles using hand building techniques and plaster molds.   Students will create their own tiles using one of Scott's hand molds.  There will be a one hour break for lunch from 11:30am-12:30pm.  Ceramic tiles will be bisque fired, followed by an application of clear glaze by CTAC staff.  Students will be notified when tiles are ready for pick up, approximately two weeks after the workshop.  For students living outside of the Petoskey area, finished tiles can be shipped to an address for an additional fee.


Scott will be featured in Essential Cargo Exhibition in Traverse City opening May 23, 2021

This workshop is being offered in Traverse City on Monday, May 23.  For more information click here.
