7:20pm on Zoom
Special Guest: Naomi Lindenfeld
We are thrilled to have renowned artist Naomi Lindenfeld present for us! She will demonstrate her unique way to create colored clay, along with her handbuilding techniques. Join us for HRP's next Zoom meeting on Wednesday, March 31st. The meeting will open at 7:20 and the demo will start at 7:30.
“I am especially drawn to working with colored clay because of the nature-inspired and rhythmic imagery that appears through the methods that I use. I experience visual wonder and discovery when carving into the layers of color. Rings of color reminiscent of ripples of water, wood grain or rock striations are revealed. This way of working with the clay results in a richness of color, flow and a multi-dimensional quality in my work. I enjoy making objects that are visually and tactilely pleasing.”
