In this comprehensive two-day demonstration, I will show how I create my work from start to finish. I will start by demonstrating how I make my hand-built forms using textured slabs, bisque molds, and basic templates. A range of forms will be covered, from smaller cups and mugs, to more complex, multi-piece forms such as pitchers, baskets, and large serving pieces. I will then demonstrate how I decorate my work using coloured underglazes and slips at the leather hard stage, showing how I use simple paper resists to create pattern and achieve a layered surface. I will also discuss inspiration sources, and strategies for surface design. Questions will be encouraged! 


Naomi Clement is a Canadian artist and educator who explores ideas of home and belonging through the powerful lens of functional ceramics. She received her MFA from Louisiana State University in 2017, and her B.F.A from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design University in 2003. Naomi has participated in residencies, given lectures and workshops, and exhibited her work across Canada and the United States. She served as a board member for the National Council on the Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) and was named a 2017 Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly magazine. She was recently a Summer Artist-in-Residence at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana.

In April 2020 I will be leading a 17 days small group ceramic tour to Morocco including a hands-on traditional ceramics workshop and I would very much appreciate if you could promote this tour to your members. 

In addition to the workshop, participants will enjoy a one day Berber cooking class as well as exploring Moroccan arts and ceramics in Fez, Safi and Meknes plus enjoy local food throughout.  A night in the desert amongst the Merzouga dunes under a thousand stars will be memorable and we will also visit Casablanca, Chefchouen and Marrakech.

The workshop will cater for all levels of experience and we also invite non-potting partners to join us.   I am limiting the workshop numbers to ensure that everyone can obtain full benefit.

If any of your members would like more details a pdf brochure can be downloaded from:  or they can contact me personally via email as per below.  Priced from US $4,195, see website for more details.
