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!

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.
