are very pleased to have hosted a John Calver demo-workshop at Rockingham
Community College on June 28 and 29, 2003.
John Calver is a ceramic artist
from England who is visiting the United States this summer. His
work and a short article about him can be found in the December 2000 issue
of Ceramics Monthly, which also features John's work on the cover.
This information-packed workshop
included: slides/plates thrown and marked with a spiral, impressed
with fabric, marked with a profile to give an asymmetric or square form/flat
bowls thrown and stretched into a flat oval/bottles thrown, chattered and
inlaid with slip, brushed slip with hakeme patterns, brushed slip with
sponge roller patterns/bowl thrown from an uncentered block of clay, with
textured edges/decoration & glazing techniques. This is just
an excerpt of John's list of his 2-day demonstration workshop.
Due to John Calver's trip to the
US, this workshop was structured around his calendar and is therefore
just 2 weeks before the third guild sponsored workshop for 2003.
