The Expression of Pots

October 9-10, 2004

9:30 am to 4:30 pm


This workshop is for developing a personal language with pottery as a form
of expression. The class will include demonstrations of different techniques
for making pots on the wheel, and discussion about the role of pottery as a
contemporary art form. Ideas and information for surface treatments and
firing techniques will be discussed and shared. Slides of the artists work
and of the Archie Bray Foundation will compliment this two day workshop.
