Greenwich House Pottery in New York offers both ongoing Resident Artist Programs and Internship Programs.
As the name implies, this is a program mainly for those interested in pursuing pottery (at least for a season) -- refining craftsmanship, glaze testing, and experimentation with form and function, as well as working in a community.
Greenwich House Pottery's 'Mission and Vision' center around utilizing art-making as a tool for improving the quality of life of individuals and families that make up the communities they serve.
Please enjoy this amusing 1958 video about GHP hosted by Sonny Fox! You'll probably not make it through the whole video...for obvious reasons...
So maybe check out this current video of what the community program is like now.
Applications for the Resident Artist program must be postmarked May 1st
Internship Applications for the Summer must also be postmarked May 1st, but Greenwich House also offers Fall, Winter, and Spring Internships
Looking for contemporary ceramic arts? Specifically a wheel thrower? Look no further than Sara Paraskeva.
For anyone who has thrown on a wheel, ceramic artist Sue Paraskeva shows the beauty of it, every step of the way. With simple techniques and traditional tools, watching her video makes me want to learn how to throw.
Hand & Eye Studio is one of the many small industry ceramic designers around the world. This UK based team pairs design with manufacturing, but never takes the human hand out of it.
The guys at Hand & Eye Studio take design principles and fuse them with the physical process of making. This not only allows for experimentation and accidents, but a reunion with handmade objects.
Their simple shapes, simple glazes, and simple function is not far from what we do at DAAP. Using this studio as an example, extending our skills can make a profit, and shows how people around the world are doing it.
