Fall Classes at Milkhouse Studio

I’ll be doing a Nerikomi Workshop on Nov. 5 at Chester Springs Studio. It’ll be a day-long hands-on workshop in the nerikomi process. Information on this workshop is on the

Chester Springs Workshops Page


Throwing Concentration

This will be a small, three-or-four person class, with concentrated instruction in wheel-throwing and working to integrate other pottery techniques such as slab-building, pinching or coiling in our process. For a beginner, this is an opportunity to learn the basics thoroughly and for intermediate potters, to develop their technique.

pinch pots made in the summer

Making pinch pots was a revelation for me and my students this past summer, almost a meditation, forming pots gently with only our hands.   I’d like to explore this process with students, and extend pinching to include forms large and small.  We’ll burnish the pots, and fire them in a sawdust “kiln.”
