Friday June 28: Artist talk and slide show with Mark Shapiro, 6:30 – 7:30 pm, followed by a pot luck dinner, workshop: Saturday June 29, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
Mark will demonstrate his approach to making compelling, personal pots. He will discuss using softer or harder clay, throwing, trimming, faceting, handle-pulling, and decorating to create pots that are dynamic and inviting. Demos will include his menu of forms and making larger sectional pots using a torch, as well as responding to the interests of the participants. Mark will share the skills and insights (and some tricks) acquired through his more than 30 years of working in the studio and engaging with the clay community.
