Two makers, one room, one material. One is spinning pots on an electric potter’s wheel. Another is creating digital designs, sending them to a 3D printer and tending to that machine’s manners of extruding. They are both working in clay. What forms do they produce? What do these very different approaches to creating look like in contrast to one another? What does a 3D Printer look like? How does a potter work in our current time? What can be learned from seeing these two makers in proximity to one another?... Read more about Exhibition | Hand Code: Makers in Proximity

Fred Herbst: Material Collaborations: A unique woodfired kiln was developed by ceramic artist and educator Fred Herbst in collaboration with the Corning Museum of Glass in 2008. This kiln design was built in order to fire ceramics and blow glass simultaneously using renewable wood fuel. Two kilns have been built, one at Corning Community College in Corning, New York and one at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France, where they both continue to reveal new possibilities with clay and glass.

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.
