The Walter Gropius Master Artist Series is presented with support from The Isabelle Gwynn and Robert Daine Exhibition Endowment. The Walter Gropius Master Arist Series was originally funded through the generosity of the Estate of Roxanna Y. Booth, who wished to assist in the development of an art education program in accordance with the proposals of Walter Gropius, who designed the Museum’s Gropius Addition, as well as the Gropius Studios. The Museum is indebted to Roxanna Y. Booth’s son, the late Alex Booth, for his participation in the concept development of the Gropius Master Artists Workshops.

The Walter Gropius Master Artist Program Presents Maria Dondero

Maria Dondero will conduct a workshop at HMA from Friday, February 9, through Sunday, February 11, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

“Let’s Make Friendly Pots”

In this workshop, the artist will share her love of clay and design with the students. Participants will start with loosely thrown and hand built forms, leaving many traces of the process to be revealed in the finished piece, and will work through to surface design or the decision to leave the surface open. All these moments and choices along the way create a unique voice that the artist will help the participants find through lively discussions, writing exercises, and brainstorming activities about style and surface decoration choices. Throughout the workshop there will be demonstrations on the wheel, as well as constructing coil, slab and pinch pots. Pots will be decorated with slip, using different surface techniques to build up layers of interest, as well as demonstrations of sgraffito including discussions of timing for varying line qualities and results. The artist will also teach about underglazes and stains, with an emphasis on brush and application styles. Additionally, the artist will discuss and demonstrate her glazing technique.
