Martha Grover Hands - On Workshop 

Presented by Pewabic and Rovin Ceramics
 
Discover the idiosyncrasies of working with porcelain on and off the wheel while working alongside noted ceramicist, Martha Grover. Over the course of this three-day workshop, participants will work with wheel-thrown forms and slabs in both the soft and leather-hard stages. Martha will demonstrate various altering techniques and the addition of slabs, handles, and spouts to create an assortment of functional forms.
 
Topics of interest to aspiring potters include, but are not limited to, crack repair and mending, glaze application using a spray gun, and Martha’s sources of inspiration and philosophy of making.
 
During the workshop, Martha’s work will be exhibited in the Pewabic Contemporary Galleries (May 16 – June 29).

Saturday Hours - May 17 - 10am - 1pm

Stop in on Saturday May 17, from 10am - 1pm  to stock up on all your studio needs!  As always, Rovin is searching high and low for the newest and most innovative products for potters and clay artists. Have you heard about the new GR Pottery Forms available exclusively at Rovin Ceramics?  These forms made their debut in the Rovin booth at NCECA 2014 in Milwaukee and sold out fast!  They are durable and economical.  These drape molds will not scratch or chip like plaster, but your slabs will release when they are leather hard!  You can find them on our website at rovinceramics.com.
