Bowls and plates will be covered, along with surface decoration techniques such as mishima, sgraffito, and waterslide decals. This workshop will consist of a lecture, demonstration, and hands-on time for students, so get ready to play!

She co-founded The Democratic Cup, a political project that seeks to catalyze conversation through collaborative cups made by more than two dozen artists. She runs Pots In Action, a curatorial project on Instagram that features international ceramics and guest hosts from all over the world. In 2016 she created Portland Brick, a collaborative public art project, that repairs city sidewalks with bricks made from local clay stamped with past, contemporary, and future memories of Portland. In 2011, she was the first recipient of Ceramics Monthly’s Ceramic Artist of the Year award. She has organized multiple online fundraisers including Obamaware in 2008 and Handmade For Japan in 2011, which has raised over $100,000 for disaster relief. She has served on multiple boards including that of the Archie Bray Foundation and currently is a trustee at the American Craft Council and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. She has taught and lectured nationally and internationally for the past 20 years.... Read more about [Canceled] Ayumi Horie Visiting Artist Workshop
