Nature-Inspired Clayworks

Description: Join Paul Aspell to create nature-inspired ceramics using hand-building techniques demonstrated in the first session of this series. The second session will meet at Paul’s studio to stain, glaze, and finish the pieces. In the third session, participants will meet to critique and pick up their finished fired works.

Paul is known for his combination of hand-built forms with thrown elements. He incorporates elements of the Eastern Shore into his pottery, as demonstrated by his washes and glazes and his use of shells and old bricks to leave imprints in the clay. He holds a master’s degree in ceramics and has taught art in public and private high schools in New Jersey. His work is featured in the Arboretum gift shop. All materials will be provided. Bring a sack lunch to the first session.

This three session program also meets on Friday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to noon at Paul's Ridgely studio and Friday, October 26 from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Arboretum.

Registration required. Fee: $55 members, $75 general public
