Holiday Open House: Jonathan Pacheco

This mug was wood fired for 52 hours and was created by Resident Artist Jonathan Pacheco. It is 4.5" tall and can be yours for $38 at our Holiday Open house next weekend. Jonathan's work contains a laying of texture, imagery and surface treatment that creates a history of beautiful decay and spontaneity. He has always found beauty in the imperfect, from the drip of glazes to how the wood ash dances with his pieces. He finds inspiration in urban settings such as walls covered with peeling posters and graffiti. Jon is also the sculpture instructor at ClaySpace.

"Bones" is in the House

"Bones," ClaySpace's newest kiln, is up and running. Resident Artist Paul "Bones" Buti jumped started our fundraising campaign for this test kiln by donating a wheel to raffle and so Paul was allowed to name it (Yes, all our kilns have names.). Four other Resident Artists donated money and our budget provided the rest!  The test kiln will allow Resident Artists and students to try new things and expand their experiences and knowledge. Isn't it cute?
