Glaze, Glaze, Glaze!!
All students who were registered in the spring term must finish glazing or take home bisqueware from spring term by July 20th at 5:45. In order to make space for the new term’s bisqueware, all work left on the bisque shelves will be discarded on July 21st. New work from summer term will be unloaded from the kilns beginning July 22.

House Demo: Carving with Gina
Studio Technician and Faculty member, Gina Tibbott, will teach our summer House Demo on Wednesday, July 24 at 2:15. Gina will teach you about her favorite tools and techniques to explore creating texture, pattern and imagery by carving into clay using colored slips and underglazes. Bring any carving tools, various paint brushes and a few small leather hard slabs made from your favorite claybody. In addition to slabs, you are welcome to bring a leather-hard cylindrical piece as Gina will discuss transferring 2D images to 3D surfaces like curved platters. This demo will take place in the 2nd floor handbuilding studio. House demos are $5; please register online or in the Liaison Office; space is limited.

Check out our new website at www.greenwichhousepottery.org. There is a new “current student” section with all relevant studio information, including Pottery Notes, Open Studio hours, the Student Handbook, the GHP Clay & Glaze Handbook, and our updated online library database.
