From the Foster Gallery: Save the Date and Join Us for a Great Hands-On Workshop!
WORKSHOP: Pottery Basics with Doug Casebeer and John Gill
Foster Gallery and Ceramics Studio, Noble and Greenough School
Saturday, November 12, 2011
9 a.m.-3 p.m.
We are thrilled to have two internationally-renowned potters, Doug Casebeer and John Gill, on campus as part of their current exhibition in Foster Gallery. Doug Casebeer is the Artistic Director for Ceramics and Sculpture at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colo., and teaches, lectures, builds kilns and exhibits his artwork worldwide. Most recently, he was a featured artist at the Chinese Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. John Gill teaches at Alfred University, considered one of top ceramics programs in the country. As a member of the Council of the International Academy of Ceramics, Gill has travelled and lectured throughout the U.S., Canada, and China.
This workshop is an exploration of the fundamentals of pottery making, both hand built and wheel thrown. The workshop focuses on pots for the table, including objects made for serving and preparing food, with Doug and John sharing their many years of ceramic knowledge and experience.
