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.
