JUNE 24th and JUNE 25th...SPECIAL (FREE) DEMO JUNE 23
HEALDSBURG ART CENTER
This will be a lot of fun. I always look forward to sharing what I have learned about paper clay.
PAPERCLAY is the only clay I use and I would like to share my serets with you. In slab form, it can twisted, folded, torn or stretched to build an evocative sculpture. Even if you are a newcomer to clay, results can be amazing. We also will talk about how I achieve my surface treatments.
All of this happens in Headsburg CA which is a wonderful new art center (as well as the epicenter of Sonoma County wine culture) Lots of galleries, restaurants and wine tasting opportunities.

Forces beyond my control are causing a change of place for me. Now, that think I about it, it will be a very positive move. In the midst of the packing I felt strongly about bringing this piece to life...somehow, within all the chaos of my life, this piece took shape and made it through the firing process. It's about moving forward and the title is...Straight on Till Morning.

It's mid January and even sunny California is cold and wet. I'm trying out some ideas in maquette form and the clay feels like creamy (sticky) peanut butter. It comes out of the bag that way. How does the clay inside the bag know that it's cold and wet everywhere?
