Randy Brodnax RAKU Workshop

Flat Rock Studio Clay Supplies & Gallery is hosting Dallas artist and Rasty
Alligator Wrestler & Story Teller, Randy Brodnax, in a workshop on the
process of Raku. Dynamic workshop leader , Randy Brodnax will present a
workshop that will entail a variety of expansive ideas on throwing and
firing techniques. A master kiln builder, Randy will fire and explore fast
fire, fast cool kilns and how to build them. He is a master potter who’s
work is highly regarded for its technical refinement and for the surface
treatments he has developed.

Randy says “As an instructor, my desire for my students is to learn and have
fun at the same time. Projects and Lessons are about life as well as art.
Art is bodacious!” Born and raised in Louisiana, Randy received his degree
in Art Education and Special Ed at Northwestern State University where he
was also an All American Collegiate football player. He is currently head of
the ceramics department at Cedar Valley College near Dallas.

Flat Rock Studio Clay Supplies is owned and run by Kelley Hatfield Wilks who
returned to the area summer 2002 after 16 years in DFW. She opened Flat Rock
Studios and Gallery November 2002. FRSCS is the area’s only pottery
supplier. She carries or can get everything the local potter needs from
moist clays, ready made glazes, hand tools, books and magazines, wheels,
kilns, to assorted raw materials. She has worked with clay for over 10 years
and has attended workshops and conferences all over the U.S. along with a
six week program in China in ’98. “I hope to help make clay as an art form,
even more accessible to the NWArk community”.

It would be helpful when posting these types of things if a state was
mentioned. I know there's a Flat Rock in MI, then the bottom mentions Fayetteville,
is that in AR? I'm guessing theres a number of Fayettevilles. I'm not
picking on this post, I'd love to see it on the for sale posts too. Just more
likely to get customers if we know where this stuff is happening :-)
