Santa Fe Clay Workshop

We recently attended a workshop at Santa Fe Clay taught by David Hicks.  This workshop was both freeing and challenging.  We worked on a larger scale than we normally work and were very pleased with our results.  It seemed everyone (there were 17 students!) enjoyed the workshop as Dave offered wonderful advice, feedback, humor and created a very open atmosphere.  His work can be seen here http://www.dh-studio.com/Bio_page.html

This will be a two part fountain- Bubblers on the top that will drain into the lower chamber.  It should have a deep sound with no splash.

This piece transformed from a large coil pot to this Ark.  It was a study in working with the technique David Hicks uses for his systems pieces.

Needless to say, we had a great time and highly recommend Santa Fe Clay’s workshops!
