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

September class info and shows


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

Hello Dear Family, Friends and Lovers of Clay,

I have enjoyed the break from teaching summer classes and I am ready to dive in again.  The summer break has allowed me to work on some new ideas.  It will be a while before I can share them with you as creating in clay is so process oriented which can take months.

So, with the Fall Equinox just around the corner, I am ready to begin a new cycle.

Companions

More work that is emerging from the glaze kiln after months of making. This work is being held for an exhibition in Louisville Kentucky.

I recently started glazing work with the thought of the objects being companions.  Having the work talk to each other rather than just having the object staring back while you are looking is the goal.  I have not yet taken the step to price the work together.  I think that is the next step so the companions are not separated.  After they leave my possession it is up to the buyer to decide their fate.

Wheel thrown, wax resist glaze technique, cone 10 electric fired, porcelain
