Farraday Newsome

Florabundance!

July 20 – 24, 2015 

Some handbuilding experience necessary.

Farraday Newsome is known for her vessels that are exuberantly developed with three-dimensional imagery, and sumptuously glazed with a colorful variant of the maiolica technique. Her subject matter is primarily drawn from nature, and her surfaces are vivid and painterly. In this workshop, participants will begin by constructing a sample high-relief wall tile from red terra cotta clay to be used for experimentation with richly saturated, glassy and colorful maiolica glazes by week’s end. Participants will then spend the week constructing a larger slab-built vessel form that will be developed three-dimensionally with press-molded elements and additions. Boxes, teapots, bowls and vase forms all lend themselves to the sculptural possibilities of this building method.

Farraday Newsome received her BA in Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz and her MA in Art with a Ceramics Emphasis from San Francisco State University. Newsome’s work can be found in many public collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Long Beach Museum of Art and the Arizona State University Fine Art Museum. She exhibits and lectures extensively, is an instructor at the Mesa Arts Center, Mesa, AZ, and has served on the Artist’s Advisory Board of the Ceramic Research Center at ASU in Tempe, AZ. Farraday and her husband, Jeff Reich, own and operate Indigo Street Pottery in Mesa, AZ.

 

 

Farraday Newsome will be conducting a week-long workshop, July 20 - 24, 2015, at Santa Fe Clay as part of their celebrated Summer Workshop Series.  Her work will also be showcased in the Santa Fe Clay Gallery during that week.


Santa Fe Clay is a renowned ceramics-dedicated enterprise that houses studio space, gallery space and a ceramic supply store.

Jeff Reich Large Commission In Progress

Jeff Reich is working on a large sculpture commission that will be installed in Carefree, Arizona. The piece consists of three stacking sections that will be stabilized by an internal rod and bolt system during installation.

This is the middle section of the sculpture by itself. Jeff has used a pencil to lay out his glaze painting composition. The pencil marks will burn out in the firing.

These are the middle and top sections of the sculpture bisqued and stacked. The middle section will fit into snugly into the top of the bottom section.

Here is the middle section glazed, loaded into the gas kiln, and ready to be fired to cone 10, approximately 2380 degrees F.

Left: The middle section has been unloaded from the kiln and it fired perfectly!

Right: Now it’s time for Jeff to glaze the bottom and top sections. In preparation for this, he made an “old-school” cut-and-paste mock-up with trimmed paper photos of all three sections, taping them together vertically on the studio wall to help “see” the overall piece and plan the glazing composition.

Middle: Persephone’s Year of Gain and Loss, 16 x 12 x 12”

Right: Murmurous Night, 18 x 13 x 12”

This is the bottom section of the sculpture. After drawing on it with pencil to lay out the composition, Jeff applied an area of black glaze. He then painted over the black glaze with wax to protect the raw glaze during further glaze applications.

Farraday Newsome, Deer Moon Bowl, glazed terra cotta, 10 x 25 x 12.5”, 2015.

This is one of twenty-seven pieces going to the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York for Farraday’s upcoming solo show opening May 16, 2015.

Our loquats are ripe! When we have guests describe the flavor, the responses vary from apricot-like, to kiwi-ish, to green apple mixed with strawberry, and invariably as delicious. The loquats are the first tree fruits to ripen in our garden each year, a time when the apricots, plums, peaches, etc. are still green. The birds are keen on them too. Since the tree is outside our enclosed vegetable garden, we put a paper bag fastened with a clothes pin around each ripening fruit clump and that has helped alot!

Indigo Street Pottery Native Landscape

Photo above: It is definitely spring in the desert! Our Palo Verde trees are laden with yellow flowers and the yucca has sent up a splendid flower stalk. The native bees love these food sources and we love the lush, exuberant look!
