Build It & Burn It! Pit-Firing Workshop at the Takaezu Studios
June 4, 5, 11, & 12, 10am - 4pm
Soft, cool, sensual clay, and dancing fire. If this is your jam, come join us! Sound like fun? We promise you it is! Pit firing is the oldest known method for the firing of pottery. Examples have been dated as early as 29,000–25,000 BCE. The continued interest in pit firing, despite the many advances in ceramic technology, is twofold.
This 4-day workshop for making and firing ceramic work for pit firing will take place at the Toshiko Takaezu Ceramic Studios and property, which includes a beautiful garden and welcoming studio space. It will take place over two consecutive weekends. Image courtesy of Pamela Becker.

Opening Reception: Spring Exhibitions
Sunday, May 15, 2 - 4pm Artist talks will start at 2:30 pm in the galleries.
Rina Banerjee: Blemish, In Deep Pink Everything Begins explores the work of Banerjee, who has had solo exhibitions throughout the world. Exhibitions in France, Japan, Singapore, Norway, Italy, India, and New Zealand to name a few, have brought her exciting, cacophonous paintings, drawings and installations to numerous audiences. Found objects in her installations and imagery in her paintings and drawings combine western and eastern cultures, speaking to colonialism and the diaspora.
Maxwell Mustardo’s unconventional approach to ceramics can be found in the title of his show, Dish-oriented, as well as in the work itself. Leaving traditional glazes and forms to others, Mustardo’s work is totally his own. Glorious colors, bubbled glazes, and anthropomorphic forms create a dazzling array of work.
