My name is Morty Bachar and I am the Director of Lakeside Pottery, School and
Studio, in Stamford CT. I was glad to see that you offer a Steven Hill
workshop. We also have a Steven Hill workshop in October 2003 but I am not able to
reach enough people to register for the 2 1/2 -day workshop. I wonder how
can I reach wider audience in the CT / NY area where some might attend the 2
1/2 day work shop. I hate to think canceling the workshop - Steven Hill is

> Aspects
> Steven's eye for form is amazing. His ability to see form and to create work

> Overview
> Steven will spend two days demonstrating his techniques of working with clay
> that include: throwing, altering, slip trailing, trimming, assembling and
> glazing. Throughout these demonstrations, Steven will discuss specific
> aesthetic and design issues in addition to philosophical and business
> practices. He will also discuss technical aspects of clay and firing with
> particular emphasis upon the single-firing process that he has used
> throughout his career of 30+ years. In addition to the 'making' phases,
> Steven will demonstrate his glazing process. The manner of teaching will be
> extremely interactive. Steven will discuss processes and answer questions

I don't know where you are located, Fran, but $285 is relatively cheap
for a workshop.

I'm in Greenwich, CT. Not too far from you. I have been interested in
visiting your facility. I have a studio in my home and I pot at Silvermine and
ClayArt in Portchester. Good luck with the workshop. I hope I have a chance to see
your facility soon.
