If you don't incorporate local materials into your
work but would like to learn how, this is the
workshop for you!
September 11, 2004, the Palouse Potters Guild will
host a workshop at my studio in Lewiston, Idaho for
anyone interested in learning how I find, test, refine and
use local materials as clay body or glaze ingredients.
There is no cost to the members of the Guild. Non members
can reserve a place for $40 in advance.
The workshop will start at 9:00 and run as late as 3:00 if
there are enough samples to process.
Each person who attends is asked to bring in a sample they
would like to see processed.
Techniques displayed will include dry milling, wet milling,
successive screening, and preparing samples for XRF
lab testing. We will also assemble a group send to the
lab for a hard rock analysis if there is any interest.
Call or write immediately as the space is limited.
My introduction to the quest for local materials began
in 1975 when I worked as research assistant to Frank
Cronk at the University of Idaho on a one year project
to find and test local pottery materials in the area. Most
of what I do today is directly descended from those
