Upcoming Events:
Next General Meeting

Friday, November 17, 2017
Anita Eddy's Studio
50 Morningside Drive
Ossining, NY
at 6:45pm

Don Reynolds will be our guest demonstrator.
He will be demonstrating:

Pattern Play: Using Underglaze & Wax
to Create the Surfaces You May
(or May Not) Desire

This demonstration will focus on the techniques
of layering colors of underglaze and wax to create
crisp, colorful patterns on ceramic objects; I will
share the tools, patterns, and methods I use to
underglaze. Discussions will include how to decide
when in the making process to decorate, dividing
the space on your forms into areas for patterning
(or not), finding tools in the most unlikely places,
and how to stay loose in what appears to be very
rigid mark making. In addition to demonstrating
how I stamp wax, I will also show how traditional
brushes can be used to achieve a more painterly

The meeting will take place at Anita Eddy's
studio, 50 Morningside Drive, Ossining, NY.
Please bring a dish to share. The potluck
starts at 6:45pm & the demo at 7:30.

See you then!

Who is a Hudson River Potter?

Hudson River Potters is an organization encompassing more than 40 potters living and working in New York's Hudson Valley, including Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Dutchess counties.

Unified as a compass and diverse as its many points, the Hudson River Potters includes sculptors, whistle-makers, and production potters who make teapots and mugs, jugs and plates: coilbuilders, slabthrowers, wheelthrowers; potters who work with low-fire earthenware clay, with stoneware, and with porcelain, in styles that run the gamut from rough to smooth, from controlled to spontaneous, from plain to fancy.  More an affinity group than an organization the Hudson River Potters provides its members with a yeasty atmosphere rich in shared techniques and creative energy.

Join our clay collective!

For 30 years, Hudson River Potters has been nurturing
the creative talents of ceramic artists, whether sculptural
or functional.
We are an informal group, loosely structured.
Membership is open to anyone who wants to join, with
no jurying.

HRP has monthly meetings September through June.  
Meetings are held  during the second week of each
month and may alternate days on a monthly basis so as
many members as possible can attend.

The Hudson River Potters is a group whose vitality is in
its flexibility for grouping and regrouping: an organization
whose programs grow out of the interests and
immediate needs of its members.  The real strength of
the HRP is the tremendous sense of personal
involvement of the members with groups, of individual
development through associations.
