NEW THIS YEAR: Saturday Clay Workshops for Adults!

Each month, Em will be offering a one day clay workshop to complete a hand built piece in her studio. Each month will offer a different object to make.  We start the morning at 10am, choosing our designs and creating our templates.  We will create our pieces using the slab, pinch pot and/or coil method of ceramics.  We will break for a light lunch of soup and salad before heading back to assemble our projects.  Once our projects are assembled, we will talk about decorating them with underglazes, or we will choose a glaze to be applied by Em after the bisque firing.  Em will then fire the work which will be ready for pickup 2 weeks later.

Artist Statement

Having grown up spending every summer at our ancestral home in Nova Scotia, Canada, my summers revolved around the 40 foot tides of the Bay of Fundy.  My days were spent in, on, and around the ocean and whether it was the feel of the fog, the sound of the seagulls, or the taste of salt water on my skin, the sea has always calmed my soul. 

Living a landlocked life in NY, I find myself longing for the ocean to right my spirit.  I find solace in creating functional pottery with glazes that reflect the greens and blues of the ocean, the whites of the waves crashing, and the trio of sea birds flying into the sunset.
