Pottery Notes

Weekly Studio Update for July 8     Week 1 of Summer Term

Welcome to Summer Term at GHP
Your instructor will hand out a pamphlet of important studio basics. Please read it as it is a good introduction to the Pottery.

Some important safety and courtesy reminders:
• No dry sanding in studios. Use the spray booth for any dry sanding.
• No X-ACTO KNIVES or tools with removable blades as they pose a safety risk to both students and staff.
• No cell phones. Please turn off phones or set to vibrate and take calls outside, not in the stairwell or hallway.

Pottery Notes
Pottery Notes is a resource for all Pottery news for all currently registered students. It is updated weekly. Pottery Notes is read in class each week, available on the Message Center, and can be found on the Pottery Notes page of our website.

Summer Open Studio Hours
Open studio is an exclusive perk only for currently enrolled students to allow for practice time outside of class. Open studio hours are available Monday – Saturdays during the Summer. The current schedule is posted on the Message Center and is available here. Please take note of studio closures during workshops and special events, these are also posted on the message center and on the calendar section of our website.

Glaze Grace Period
As usual, in order to make space for the new term’s bisqueware, returning students are required to glaze all unfinished spring term bisque during these first two weeks of summer term (July 8-20). All work left on the bisque shelves will be discarded on July 21, so please finish your glazing or take home your bisque by July 20th.

New work from summer term will be held in the kilns until all spring work is removed from these shelves.

Returning Students
Please take a moment to check your Spring term class shelf and move any work in progress to your summer class shelf. (This does not apply to bisque shelves, only classroom shelves as bisque shelves will be labelled with summer class numbers, on July 21 st )

Join us for the opening reception of Ollas, an exhibition of work by Harlan Reano and Lisa Holt on Friday, July 12, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Reano and Holt, married collaborators, have been making pottery in the Cochiti and Kewa/Santa Domingo Pueblo tradition for the last 20 years. Handbuilding and decorating pottery in the tradition of artists before them, they have used that knowledge to create forms and surface designs inspired by their own imaginations, historical Pueblo pottery, and artistic styles from across the globe. The exhibition will be on view through August 8.

The Resident is In
This week we welcome our new artist in residence, Kari Marboe. Marboe is an artist who combines her archival research and ceramics practice to create works that engage the public. She will be delving into the Pottery’s archive to create new work. Stop by the 1st floor residency space any time the door is open to say hello and see what she is up to.

Hello, Goodbye.
With the end of spring term we said goodbye and thank you to Carly Moreno, who joined team liaison in 2017.

This week we welcome a new liaison, Chloe Theodosiou, to the team– be sure to say hello!
