Dara Hartman Slip Casting & Mold Making Workshop

Dara Hartman’s ceramic art is an exploration of form and surface. Her pieces are slip cast in porcelain and carved with subtle playful patterns that are accented with bursts of color. This workshop will cover the basic principles of designing, making, and using molds. The class will include demonstrations on making simple and multiple part molds as well as slip casting. There will also be discussions on plaster and slip formulation.

About Dara Hartman:

Dara is a full time studio artist based in Salt Lake City, UT. She received a BFA from Virginia Tech and an MFA from Montana State University. In 2005, she was an Artist in Residence at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana. After graduate school she moved to Washington and was an Adjunct Professor at Clark College in Vancouver, WA and at Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, OR. While in Oregon she was commissioned by Marriott to create 70 figurative sculptures for their Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center hotel. Most recently, Dara’s life has taken her to Salt Lake City, UT where she worked for 3 years as a product designer, a design team leader, and traveled to China to work with factories on model design and production.

Growing up in a family of makers Dara was raised with paints, pastels, clay, yarn, thread, and fabric in her hands. The women in her life made things for the home. This desire to make utilitarian objects wove into her youth and has stayed with her over the years. Clay was the medium that spoke to her. She fell in love with the intimate nature of utilitarian ceramics and how these pieces are a part of our everyday experience, from plates arranged on a table to how a cup touches your lips.
