Workshopee News

     A little embarrassed at my prolonged blog/website absence, especially given this is the post that I come back with, but here goes. 

     Next weekend, November 3 and 4, at Sertoma Arts Center in Raleigh, NC, I am commandeering a demonstration workshop on my approaches to the ceramic surface.  I'll be throwing some forms, altering them, assembling them, and tackling that ceramic surface from the get go, while it is still yet wet clay and not quite baked into hardened durability.  I'll be showing some slipping, some sigging, and some glaze/wax patterning.  So, if you want 2 days of surface attacks and augmentation, come on over to NC's capital city and hang out a few hours at Sertoma with some potters and the like. 

Here is more important info:
