July 8, 15, 22, 29: Learn wedging, centering, throwing, and trimming basic forms in this 4 day class. Enjoy one-on-one interaction as you learn the skills needed to become comfortable working on the potter’s wheel. Class will include basics of decorating, glazing, and firing finished work.
John Huston’s philosophical view is as simple and straight-forward as his pots. “As a potter, it is always wonderful and humbling to pick up a pot that is 100, 1,000, or even 5,000 years old and find the fingerprints of the person who made it. That connection to all those who have done this before me is a real anchor in these times that seem to place great value on instant gratification and constant change above a shared constancy. Making pots is slow, deliberate work that requires a quiet centeredness.”
John’s work is available at the Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor.
