Clay class begins January 17th, 2018


2018 started out very busy with a workshop at BAYarts in Bay Village.  The group of 10, which included me, explored glazing techniques.  Wax resist is a most difficult technique to teach as the technique has many variables like the thickness of the glaze to the moisture in the air.  We all had a good time!


With the busy start to the New Year I will be pushing back the starting day of the next class session one week.
Maybe the cold has you hibernating or cabin fever is about to drive you crazy.  If the latter is true sign up for a clay class.
Classes resume January 17th.
CLASS INFORMATION
WHEN:  Wednesday evening January 17th or Thursday morning January 18th for 6 weeks.
TIME:  Wednesday evening 6:00-8:30pm or Thursday morning 11:00am-1:30pm.
FEE:  $150.00 which includes the use of most materials such as tools, clay, glaze and firing.  Bring an apron, towel and a few brushes.
WHAT is OFFERED?  Handbuilding and wheelwork is offered to all levels of experience.  Remember to... Bring an apron, towel and paint brushes.  I can show you what brushes to purchase during the first class session.
WHO?  Adults or young old souls!
WHERE?  Located in Novelty (AKA Russell Township) in the barn out back.  13796 Chillicothe Rd. Novelty, Ohio  44072
Let me know of any special requests you may want to explore with clay and glaze and I can see what I can do for you.  theresayondo@gmail.com 

Some changes for the New Year include the closing of Gestures/ArtistTree in Rocky River and The H'Art of Chagrin in Chagrin Falls.  Thank you Val and Chris from Gestures.  A privilege to have worked with the two of you for 9 years.  Good luck Debra at the H'Art of Chagrin on your next adventure.

Please forward to a friend you think may be interested in this information and if you would like to be added to this email list let me know.

Thank you and have a great year,

So much to do and so little time!


I love to visit studios where creating something out of a simple material is the norm wether it be glass, clay or paint.  It has always been a place of wonder and possibilities in my mind. Two studios I love to visit are Superior Hot Glass and Brickstudios and this weekend I will have work at both studios.


Superior Hot Glass is located at 1588 E. 40th St. just off Superior in Cleveland, Ohio.  The studio is having their annual open studios and will have guest artist's selling work and ongoing glass blowing demonstrations.  The days and hours for this event are Saturday December 2nd 10am-7pm & Sunday December 3rd Noon - 5pm.
The studio is tucked behind the Shovelworks building (1558 E. 40th.)  http://superiorhotglass.com/

Waterloo studios will be open for first Friday, December 1st and you can find my hearts along with many other artisan works at Brickstudios located 420 E. 161 St. in Cleveland, Ohio.  Brick Holiday Sale will have a first look preview Friday Dec. 1st 6-9pm through January 6th.  Regular hours are Monday 5-9pm and Wed. & Sat. Noon-4pm.  Check out the many other galleries in the area for events and times.  https://www.facebook.com/WaterlooArtsDistrict/

November 2017 Studio, Class info. and Shows






Greetings from Concept to Creation, the studio of Theresa Yondo.

The cold has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere here in Novelty, Ohio.  Gardening is nearly laid to rest and thoughts turn to staying warm and keeping the light on until the daylight returns.  The lack of daylight can easily put me into a drunken stupor figuratively speaking.  This seems to be a good time to relearn wood firing techniques.  The image above is the kiln on Brinsley Tyrrell's property.  Last week I met the crew and helped out with the firing.  We will be unloading on Thursday and I will have work in the next kiln.  I look forward to adding this activity to my world of ceramics

On another note, we had so much fun last night in clay class making round hollow balls.  Maybe I can call them orbs since it is a Halloween thing.  Next week we will turn them into pumpkins.
