March 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This month’s meeting. on Wednesday, March 11, is one week earlier than usual due to spring break. We are fortunate to have two fantastic presenters: Adel and Sid Samphire. Adele works largely on the wheel in porcelain and stoneware clays. Her surface decoration, influenced by her early training in textile design, uses application of stains, oxides and other glazes applied directly upon a base glaze with a variety of brushes. Sid uses slab and coil techniques to produce sculptural and functional objects from grogged stoneware clay. His work is influenced by aspects of nature and architecture. Shape, form, surface texture, colour and space are important elements. Surfaces are impressed and incised as well as glazed.
