Masters Series Nick Joerling “Pots and Possibilities” Sat. Aug 4th 10-4 pm


Many of us around The Village have been personally awaiting this workshop. Why? Because we love the way he takes a piece of clay and makes it sing and stand out!

“Beginning with round pots coming from the wheel, I’ll
push, cut, coax and stretch those forms. Why alter pots? Tom Spleth
nicely observed: “As work departs from thrown forms that typically
refer to pots and pottery, it gains the ability to describe forms in
nature, suggest the vulnerability of the figure, and express the
asymmetry found in human experience. The focus will be on utilitarian
pots, but I’ll take some liberties with that notion too. A brief slide talk
will give an overview of the kinds of pots I make. We’ll have lively
conversations about every thing from making a living to making pots personal.”
