Functional Ceramics 2010--Sylvie
The last presenter at the Wayne Center for the Arts in Wooster Ohio was Silvie Granatelli. Hers was a quieter enthusiasm--one that I felt more of a connection to. She told us her focus in this workshop was on dinner ware--something related to food. The workshop set would be aimed for the more formal and architectural presentation of food.
Silvies tools? She told us she was trained on the Randall wheel and uses those plaster bats refitted to her present wheel. There are a few more, a wire, wood knife, steel rib, sponge, plastic rib and highly eroded fettling knife.
The pictures here is of Silive pulling a handle off a tea cup and of her demonstration dinnerware set.
