An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday, repeating until April 29, 2023
This grounding experience will bring together written word with hands-on clay creations. Guided writing and clay sculpture will be tied together to create a story for each participant. Active duty and veterans will be lead through writing exercises by a local veteran and writer, O’Dell Isaac II. The written word will be transcribed onto the surface of sculptural clay pieces with the guidance of professional potter, Maggie Quinn. Textures and patterns will be incorporated into the clay forms. You will learn the properties of clay and the steps of construction for pit firing. The completed works will be pit fired. Each message and vision will be a completed archival piece to hang. Lunch will be provided for both sessions. An exhibition of the works will be held May 5 (1st Friday)- July 3.
Registration at Bemis School of Art is required.

*Disclaimer: the pit firing will involve fire and loud noises such as popping and crackling.
