You are invited to join us for a relaxing winter break with John Bauman. Come and spend time with old and new friends, talk about clay, and learn some new tricks!

Quoting John:

"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 somehow survived.

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."
