A New Year Begins 2017

Happy New Year to All.

With 2016 behind us and 2017 beginning I wanted to thank everyone for your friendship, patronage and continued support in helping to create a world where clay work has a place.

I continue to explore texture and glaze on the small sculptural objects I make such as the hearts and with the functional work pattern and contrast with the wax resist technique.  Two days a week I still work at McGregor Retirement Community facilitating art therapy projects.  I can hardly believe I have been there 5 years.  And on Wednesdays, I continue to teach privately out of my studio.  This schedule sometimes gives me Thursday through Sunday to immerse myself in studio work.

I already have started the New Year with the possibility of having two new wholesale accounts, one in Texas and one in Cincinnati, Ohio, and two private clay parties scheduled so the journey continues to unfold.

The studio classes will begin one week from today on January 11th.  There now are 6 wheels and a slabroller in the studio.

Begins Wed. January 11th for 6 weeks.
TIME Wednesday morning Noon - 2:30 pm or
Wednesday evening 6:00-8:30 pm.

FEE Class fee is $150.00 which includes most materials.  Bring an apron and towel!
Reserve your spot by email,
WHAT (Beginning, intermediate or advanced) Hand building and wheel work is offered.  I have one student interested in cone 6 glazes.  Although we work with cone 10 in the studio I have agreed to have a few glaze making sessions on a Friday morning.  The first is scheduled on Friday the 13th at NooN. You must have your own kiln to fire the glaze tests.
What to Bring You may want to bring an apron, towel and paint brushes.  I can show you what brushes to purchase the first day of class.
WHO Adults or young old souls!
WHERE Located in Novelty (AKA Russell Township) in the barn out back.
13796 Chillicothe Rd (AKA State Route 306)
Novelty, Ohio 44072
