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.

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

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.

Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle St

Hanane Hajj AliOn her daily jogging route through Beirut, Lebanon, playwright, actor and cultural activist Hanane Hajj Ali began to take notes. She started jogging as exercise – to avoid stress and fend off osteoporosis. Along the way, she began to see the streets of her city with new eyes. As she considered the city’s history of building and destruction through war, she thought about her roles of woman, wife and mother. She examined her dreams and desires. And she thought about Medea.
