WE at the New Jersey Artists Guild had the plaeasure of having Hank Morrow
for a 2 day workshop at one of our member's studio, during which he demonstrated
has techniques for throwing plates, bowls, and trimming them with great Bison
Tools and creating a shallow foot on plates without removing any material but
using his own designed roller, moving the clay rather than removing the clay.
The workshop, which ended yesterday afternoon elicited this comment from one
of our most experienced potters: " The workshop was great; please pass along
my thanks to Hank; he's a very knowledgeable and sensitive man with a very
generous, giving spirit."
