I recently had the privilege to work with celebrated Ojibwe artist Michael Belmore at our Neechee Studio workshops for aboriginal youth. A lot of his work is sculptural, and for this workshop he shared with us his process for sculpting in white clay and firing/smoking in open pits. This technique creates hardened clay pieces with a unique blackened surface. The best part of all, the youth got to exhibit their sculptures alongside Michael’s work at Definitely Superior Art Gallery as part of the annual Urban Infill event. A super great experience for everyone!
