Please join us for the next installment of our Wise Women Series with one of the most talented porcelain potters working today, artist Lorna Meaden! Over the course of this action-packed two day workshop, Lorna will demonstrate a number of her exquisite thrown and altered porcelain forms (watering cans! spoons!), her slip inlay process and share some soda firing tips and techniques. This is a workshop you won't want to miss!
"Functional pottery, in its connection to sustenance, closely relates to the human body, revealing what it means to be human. Handmade pots are potent in their power to reveal the extraordinary, within the ordinary. I am driven by the insatiable pursuit of the “good pot”. Successful in terms of tactile, visual, and functional attributes; lastingly significant when packed with the passion of the maker- reflecting humanity, and contributing to the craft." - Lorna Meaden
