opening reception: April 8 from 6-10pm
artist talk and hands-on demo at clayspace: April 9
Josh Manning currently resides in the Blue Ridges Mountains of Virginia where his studio is nestled in the recesses of an agrarian mountain community. Manning works within the parameters and traditions of functional pottery which serves as a starting point for form and surface exploration. Inspiration for his work is far and wide, reflecting life experiences ranging from mid-century American industrial pottery to the Qingbai ware of 11th century China. Josh’s work explores processes of wood-firing and salt-glazing.
Mike Rozzi hails from Kentucky and received his BFA from West Virginia University. Rozzi extensively studied pottery and language in China which has been a major influence on his work and life. Another major source of inspiration for Rozzi, in addition to the support of his family, has been the pottery work of friends and peers who have constructively helped push his forms and production even further. Mike’s work is a recent exploration in mid-range reduction firing.

Clayspace will host a ceramic workshop and artist talk featuring ceramic artists Josh Manning & Mike Rozzi. The workshop is free and open to the public. During the workshop Josh will demonstrate a variety of throwing techniques and altering and texturing thrown pieces off the wheel. He will also discuss exploration of form and the concepts and ideas driving his work.
The workshop will take place Saturday April 9, 6-9 pm. Hope to you there!April 7, 2011 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #434832
During the same time as the ceramic workshop and artist talk Clayspace will also be hosting a raku workshop. Participants will glaze a handmade piece of pottery and watch as itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fired in our raku kiln by clayspace artist Todd Hickerson. The kiln is heated to 1850 degrees then opened so the work can be removed with tongs and placed in metal cans filled with combustible material. The cans are then covered and the fire reacts with the glaze to create iridescent and metallic effects on the pottery. Finally the pieces are submerged in water and guests can take their work home with them. $30 per piece, call to reserve a spot in the kiln. (614)449-8144
