April 13 Understanding Glazing in Ceramics: Jeff Zamek
Glazing is a manipulation of the surface of a clay piece which is often misunderstood. Ceramic artist and technical expert Jeff Zamek will introduce some of the mysteries and complexities of glazes, giving viewers a better sense of what controls the results that we see in finished pieces.

June 15 Current Work: Ben Evans
Ben Evans will discuss his recent work, which focuses on geometry and structure in architectural themes. He works primarily on the wheel and then uses surface treatments and manipulation of clay forms to rethink the entire 360 view of the piece. Ben will bring in examples and walk the audience through some of his process.
