TOUR THE GARDEN

1530 Randolph Road, Alfred Station, NY 14803

You are welcome to come to join us on July 15th at 6:30 pm when I will be showing the Wellsville Garden Club our gardens.  I will talk about how I approach gardening as if I were creating an artwork, and how to do it in on a low budget.  I am not a master gardener, just work hard at it!  Come share your knowledge with me so I can learn also.

Workshops:

CLAY WORKSHOPS DURING MOSTARTS AT ALFRED UNIVERSITY
On Monday, July 8th, I will be giving 2 different workshops in Alfred University's Connors Family Pavillion during the week of the MostArts festival.  Take one or both!
9:00 to 11:30 am "Small Bowls with Interesting Rims"
Have fun making a simple bowl using a support form, giving careful consideration to how the rim and foot are finished.  Several rims and feet will be demonstrated, or come with your own ideas in advance.
2:00 to 4:30 pm  "Flowerpots with Mozart Inspired Surface Designs"
A demonstration will show you how to make a basic cylinder, which then becomes a flowerpot by cutting a hole in the bottom (or not).  The outside walls can be textured with decoration inspired by Mozart's time period, musical notes, or your own written account of how Mozart makes you feel.  Let your imagination decide!

All tools and clay will be provided.  Under age 15 must be accompanied by an adult.  Your pot can be fired once without glaze and be picked up at the end of the week.

My teaching philosophy involves helping people feel inspired and connected to their creative imaginations.  I encourage them in a non-judgmental way, try to expose them to as many influences as possible, help them with specific techniques that apply to their ideas, and emphasize that mistakes can be very productive. 

I teach occasional one or two day workshops from my Boston studio.  Each has a different theme or project.  I also teach workshops outside my studio at various places such as art centers, clay studios, or schools.  These usually are more related to my personal work, with discussion of how I follow a path of ideas, how my personal philosophy and motivations have evolved over many years of working in clay, demonstrations of techniques I use in my own work, and a PowerPoint presentation showing work by other artists who approach the subject of nature in a different way than I do.

Please contact me if you are interested in taking a workshop, or if you have a venue where I could present a workshop.         Here's a video of me working in the studio:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvbWoOWIWUE
