    Presented by: Harvard CeramicsBen Owen III


    Join us in welcoming master potter Ben Owen III for a half-day demonstration of his throwing process and lecture on his work and his role within the lineage of makers from Seagrove, North Carolina. Born into a traditional pottery family, he was first introduced to clay by his grandfather when he was eight years old. Ben’s natural talent and unusual level of interest led to an apprenticeship with his grandfather and father at age 13. Through high school, he carefully studied the shapes, glazes, and traditions of the Owen aesthetic and learned to appreciate the history and legacy of generations of craft. This event, in part, celebrates the exhibition of his work at Pucker Gallery.

    Demonstration: 1:00-4:00 pm
    Slide lecture: 5:00-6:00 pm

    This event is free to Harvard Undergraduates and Graduate students. For adults enrolled in a Spring course at Harvard Ceramics Program, the fee for this workshop is $20. For those not enrolled in a course for the Spring term, the fee for this course is $50. Download a registration form here.
