April newsletter and show application

April newsletter and show application

The Clayfolk April newsletter and the 2016 show application can be downloaded below. April 2016 newsletter 2016 Clayfolk_Show_Application (1) A message from the 2016 Show Chair: A number of Clayfolk potters are already busy in their studios and some of you pit fired some amazing pottery at Debbie Raddatz-Thompson and Bill Thompson’s home. The tremendous variety of remarkable pottery in the Show last year was so exciting…I can hardly wait to see what everyone creates this year! What a wonderful 40th celebration we had. The time that you put in working at the Show, along with your incredible pottery, made 2015 the best Show ever. Customers all weekend told me how friendly our potters are and how much they look forward to our Show this coming year. With all of us working together, I know we will continue to grow, amazing our returning and new customers. Just a reminder that the newsletter is only sent hard copy to those who requested it on the Membership Application and will be sent to the rest of the Clayfolk Membership via enews. If you are applying for the Show you will need to download the Show Application, print it out and then send it to me with your booth fees. Some things to remember: We have 3 pop-up booths available, first come, first served. Please send a separate $25 check in WITH your booth fee if you are interested. When two or more applicants have the exact same number of points, their position on the Participant List will be determined by postmark. Your Show Application must be postmarked no later than June...
WORKSHOP: Throwing Multi-Piece Forms with Max Reinhardt

WORKSHOP: Throwing Multi-Piece Forms with Max Reinhardt

This workshop will present ideas in working with multiple piece or part forms such as the two-piece beautiful design of the north African tagine, or the skies the limit tulipiere. It can be difficult combining different thrown parts or getting lids to fit properly, and especially getting the silhouettes of stacked parts to match properly.  I feel it is especially important to add these types of techniques to one’s throwing repertoire, and for anyone finding it difficult to achieve much height throwing, stacking pieces is a valuable idea. This will be a 6 hour day long intensive with demonstrations and discussions throughout and opportunities for individuals to get critiqued on pieces and throwing techniques.
