    This week, we visit the studio of sculptor Christina Erives! Christina believes that ceramics as material has permanence, it is one of the ways we were able to learn about ancient cultures. There is so much beauty in these traditions and her aim has been to make a mark of her time that will be preserved in the history of ceramic objects.

    You are going to flip your lid during this very special 2-hour event with Denny McLaughlin at the Harvard Ceramics Program in Allston, MA. Denny, being one of the few staff who have access to our facility due to COVID, will be working in our studio live! This session will focus on throwing lidded forms - jars, casseroles, etc.. Denny will address the challenges of creating lids, finials and pairing handles to the lidded form.

    We are thrilled to travel to Chicago to visit multi-media artist, author and educator Paul Andrew Wandless. Our discussion will be around materiality and the thought process Paul goes through to choose what types of materials serve his concepts best. Clay, printmaking, stone carving, mold making, leatherworking, metalsmithing, wood carving and painting are all mediums used in combination or individually for creation of his works. How do you organize a studio to work with a multiple materials, all with different characteristics and needs for space and safety? Well, we shall find out!
