Gather in the Mary E. Black Gallery for a brief look at some of Rachel’s most recent works on display and get introduced to various decorative carving techniques she has developed in her more than 30 years creating a wide variety of hand thrown, carved, and glazed functional ceramics through her Otter Creek business, Hidden House Pottery.
Rachel will demonstrate her technique for creating intricate hand-carved designs onto 3-d pieces. She’ll also offer insight into how to make your own carving tools for future work.
Hands-on participants will carve their own design onto a leather-hard stoneware cylinder and (time permitting) a domed lid suitable for hanging. These works will be stained and glazed in the NSCCD studio for folks to pick up after firing.
- All skill levels are welcome to participate. No previous experience necessary.
- A 30 minute lunch break is planned. Feel free to bring your own lunch or visit the nearby Farmers' Market vendors.
