Ceramic artist Erich Knoche will demonstrate how he makes his work. Eric says his work is an exploration of the underlying cadences and postulates of his own life, and the layers of culture that surrounds him.
Glass artist David Walters will demonstrate glassblowing. David uses the forms he creates to serve as a reference, as well as a virtual canvas, to the stories he illustrates on them. He works mostly with characters from fairy tales and children’s stories, primarily for their familiar associations.
STARworks Clay Studio resident artists & friends will fire their work in the Noborigama kiln. The firing will last all weekend.
Ceramic artist Michael Sherrill will demonstrate how he makes his work. Michael considers himself a materials-based artist experimenting primarily in the media of clay, metal and glass. At the heart of his interest is the intersection of where humans and materials meet in both handmade objects and the natural world.
