February 2023 | Tiffany Thomas (She/Her) - Captivating Wheel Thrown Sculptures - Cultivating Inner Voice

Regular price$275.00

Clay By The Bay is thrilled to be hosting Tiffany Thomas (@tthomasarts) for our FEBRUARY 2023 workshop artist.

100% of the registration proceeds will be donated DIRECTLY to the artist, to support the ever growing community of talent we strive to nurture  


Tiffany Thomas is a native of Florence, South Carolina. Born in 1985, she was raised on a farm and thoroughly enjoyed growing up in a large family. She incorporates her childhood into artwork by surrendering to clay, employing it as a vehicle to showcase her innermost being. Her clay of choice is translucent porcelain, fired with colorful stains and glazes. Her ceramic work focuses on an array of designs; from cups and mugs to light fixtures and table pieces. All of her pieces are hand carved.

Tiffany has exhibited in numerous shows such as a solo show at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; The South Carolina Arts Commission Gala, The North Carolina Museum of Art, The Spartanburg Juried Competition and The Pee Dee Regional art Competition. 

Tiffany was also a speaker and demonstrator at the National Conference on Education for the Ceramic Arts in 2022. 


Day one: Throwing and altering vessels on the wheel 

Day two: Sculpting and developing ideas on vessels 

In this workshop, I will guide you to create functional vessels on the wheel. You will intuitively create wheel thrown shapes as I demonstrate different techniques on the wheel. Later, we will work on discovering your inner voice in ceramics while creating sculptural, utilitarian mugs by using molds, natural objects to create texture and carving the clay to create stones. We will also discuss underglaze and glaze application. 


WORKSHOP TIME & LOCATION: Friday night will be an Artist Talk from 7-9pm where everyone in the community is invited to meet & greet the artist and hear more about their craft!

Saturday & Sunday from 11am-3pm you will have a reserved seat to learn from the artist and work along side them to expand your ceramic skillset!  Registration will be for BOTH events, and a lunch break will be included. 

All activities will be hosted at Clay By The Bay's facilities (1618 Pacific Ave, San Francisco, 94109)

We can't wait for you to join us!

I’ve now taken a few classes at Clay By The Bay, all with different instructors - all have been wonderful experiences. It’s fun to see how different people teach the same concepts and find what clicks for you

I love the studio! I use it as often as I can to practice and create! As a student - you get access to it every day of the week! I’m so happy that I found this place and discovered this hobby of mine ☺️
