@ AMOCA Ceramics Studio

301 N Garey Ave
Pomona CA  91767



Peter Callas has forged a career spanning 45 years earning him a
worldwide reputation for both his pioneering work with the Anagama
kiln and his unique style of Ceramic Art.
Callas’ poetic and expressionist work often “speaks” to the viewer
and his spirited approach will help students handle clay in new and
exciting ways.
At this two day, HANDS-ON workshop you will learn the art of “One of Kind Forms” from wheel and slab construction with a master artist. His approach emphasizes how to deal with clay’s expressionistic challenges while abstracting vessels and constructing ceramic sculptures.
Peter will demonstrate his techniques and process as well as discuss his aesthetics and inspirations in life. He will also give PowerPoint presentations and show a 20 minute film on Peter Voulkos.
This intimate presentation will make it a rewarding experience for
participants at all levels.

Peter's Artist Statement:
I have expressed life thru art and sought to make a connection of man to nature.
The process of wood firing ceramics in wind tunnel kilns molded my character and has been the creative touchstone that changed my aesthetic focus.
The kiln served as a tool for finishing work as well as an engine for creative innovation linking the poetics of clay to my vision.
A collaborative vocabulary of expressionism emerged that blended both historical references and contemporary intellectual values.
