Supply list for Hawaii workshops

Supply list for Aha Hana lima workshops:

Our plan is to have people work in teams so if you’re flying not to worry on bringing the drill w/ glaze attachment, nor the 5 gallon buckets. Each team will need this so we can match you up with someone who has this…..

besides normal clay tools:
Scissors- sturdy
2-5 gallon buckets with lids
A 5 gallon bucket lid cut with a slit in it so that the clay does not slop out ( we can cut these the first day
Electric drill with  clay/glaze mixer bit on end (18” long) and extension cord (needs to be able to run for 30+ minutes or more so should be electric…)if not bring extra batteries.
A good colander that has small openings that will fit over 5 gallon buckets. (Glaze sieves work too).
2 pint size containers with lids
Rolling pin
Old paint brushes
Apron is a must
Your own towel/rag
1-2 squirt bottles with small openings- like ketchup/mustard or hair dying bottles

Also , bring in some cotton twine of sorts, and anything you might want to dip:
lace, pine cones, leaves, etc…(not too big)

Current show at Harvey Meadows Gallery in Aspen through March 9th





Upcoming Paperclay Workshops in Hawaii, March, 2015

Aha Hana Lima: “a gathering of crafts”

I will be giving two weekend workshops and lectures through the arts organization, Hawaii Craftsmen, a 48 year old non-profit organization of artists-members in Hawaii:

  • 1st on Oahu, Thursday,   March 19- Sunday, March 22nd
  • 2nd on Kauai, Thursday, March 26- Sunday, March 29th

These are open to the public, so if you need an excuse to come to Hawaii this spring to take a workshop, here’s your chance!

” Every spring we bring mainland artists to Hawaii for a series of  workshops in various media and always with two clay workshops, one on Oahu island and a second on a neighbor island (Kauai).   We call this program Aha Hana Lima, which in Hawaiian means “a gathering of crafts”.

Colorado Clay Opening tonight 6:30-8:30, Foothills Art Center

Wonderful Exhibition curated by Doug Casebeer

January 25th-March 16th




Since its first juried ceramics exhibition in 1974, FAC has demonstrated its commitment to Colorado artists working in clay by presenting over 30 exhibitions that have focused on the medium.  Becky Guy, Colorado Clay Coordinator, describes a major change in the 2014 exhibition from those of previous years: “The 2014 Colorado Clay exhibition will differ from past shows by adding an invitational component to the traditional juried process. FAC has invited several highly accomplished Colorado artists who are doing exciting new things with clay to participate in the exhibition, alongside those artists who have been juried in.”
Invited artists include Bebe Alexander, Heather Mae Erickson, Sara Ransford, Martha Russo and Maynard Tischler

This year’s juror is Doug Casebeer, Chair of the Artists Residency Program and Artistic Director of Ceramics, Sculpture, Furniture Design & Woodworking at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass, CO.
Juried artists include Julie Anderson and Gregory Grasso, Penney Bidwell, Mark Boulding, April Brooks, Sarah Christensen, Deborah Dell, Jay Dougan, Kim Ferrer, Robin Furuta, Jenny Gawronski, Kim Louise Glidden, Carla Kappa, Carol Kliger, Lynda Ladwig, Jamie Lang, Claudia Mastrobuono, Lauren Mayer, Claire McArdle, Sharon McCoy, Frank Nemick, April Noble, Mike Rand, Todd Redmond, Jerry Rhodes, Maura Rieman, Shelley Schreiber, Bob Smith, Stephanie Thomas, Rita Vali, Denise Whittaker-Hoar, and Steven Wood.
