It’s happening this Fall here at The Village Potters Clay Center in the River Arts District, Asheville, NC.
You will have the opportunity to choose between glazing a few pots in a great selection of Shinos and fire your pots to cone 10 reduction with me and Lori Theriault, or Saggar fire with Judi Harwood. Then we all will fire several pots in the Kazegama with the amazing firing team, George Rolland and Karen Dubois!
We will complete all these firings during our week. You will receive specific details about what to make, dimensions and appropriate clay bodies for these firings. Then you can take your pots home with you at the end of the week.
This gathering will be small and intimate. We are limiting it to 40 registered participants, 4 volunteers, our wonderful apprentices and of course us, the TVP team. Most activities will be in smaller groups averaging 8-20 people.
In the year of unprecedented isolation and challenges, we have emerged victorious, better than we were going in and ready to gather and celebrate!
