I would like to let all people who are interested in our ceramics classes* know that each glaze now has a fired sample attached to the bottle. This will allow you see what the glaze will look like when fired. Of course, we all know, fired glazes can take on a life of their own and look different than expected. These samples were done for the overcoat glazes. The under glazes should be the approximate color they are in the bottle.
For those who would like to join us in Ceramics/Clay Group, we meet on Tuesday evenings from 6 pm to 8:30 pm and Thursday mornings 9 am to 12:30 pm with the guidance of Kris Belkola.
The guild has a lot of room to spread out and with our large slab roller you can roll out a flat piece of clay with an even depth from 1/8th inch to 1 inch thick fast.
Everything you might need to work on clay is available for use at the guild. This includes tools, glazes and the use of the kiln for a $5 fee per class for members, and $8 per class for non-members. Clay is available for purchase at the guild. This is an incredible deal. I don’t know of anyplace else with this opportunity.
The people are great, with many ideas and help with getting started for those who are new to ceramics/clay. Critiques help us grow as artists.
Please join us in our classes. There is nothing more fun than playing with mud!
Valerie Brandau, President
