"2018 marks the
40th year of making my living in pottery. Despite the humblest of
beginnings (my first pottery was an 8’X16' shed I built in
the trailer park I lived in at the time) and a very poor education
(ceramics class in an art department barely 2 years old) I have
In this workshop I’ll
demonstrate and talk about adding curb appeal to pottery to make
it stand out in a competitive pottery market. I’ll show how
I’ve added value to functional pottery with some shortcut
(and long cut) methods to creating surface interest in common pottery.
We’ll discuss slip – trailing, masking, texturing. We’ll
discuss carving – geometric patterns and patterns from nature.
I'll also demonstrate how I make the pottery that I stole from nature
-- gourds, leaves, pears, acorns.
I’ll do my best
to convey how I look at a pot as I’m making it, and how the
curse of a bad education early on led to the blessing of making
pots unlike other potters."
