This intensive will consist of two sessions of 4 hours and 2 hours respectively. It will be held at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook: www.spectrumartgallery.org
The first session, 4 hours, will concentrate on hand building techniques. I will demonstrate how to make a carved slab platter, a small pinch bowl or a coil vessel as time allows. I will fire the pieces and bring them to the second session for participants to work on glazing techniques during the second, 2 hour, session.
Participants can arrange to pick up fired work 3 weeks after the second session.

Times: March 10 (12:30-4:30pm) and March 31 (2-4pm)
Cost: - $200 plus $30 material fee paid to the instructor; Members save $20
This class will meet on Monday nights from 6 to 8 pm. November 5, 12 and 19 will be devoted to hand build a vessel, then carve and decorate it using various methods. On December 3rd glazing will take place. Finished and fired work will be picked up on December 10 in time for the holidays.

This is the first of two weekends that I will do this year as part of the Open Studios in New Haven. I will be in building 8, second floor. The entire former Erector Set factory is filled with artists' studios. I will be sharing a large space with other artists who are renting a space for the weekend.
315 Peck Street in New Haven, building 8 second floor.
This is the kick off of a month of open studios around the city. All the artists involved in the different weekends of the festival have a piece in this show. This event is very well attended. Like everyone else I will have a piece displayed.
