Program Description

Dating back to 24,000 B.C., clay and ceramics are one of the oldest mediums used by civilization to produce sculptures, jewelry, and other three dimensional creations. However, this medium hasn’t rested on its laurels, as, in the last few decades, advances in materials and approaches have opened up new possibilities for ceramic jewelry, pushing this ancient practice into future forward constructions.

From translucent clay polymers originally created for doll making to the Japanese creation of precious metal clay, the series Future Forward: Workshops in Innovative Ceramic Jewelry gives both novice and expert the chance to integrate these recent ceramic developments into their own wearable wonders.
