Halloween Ceramic Show At Clayworks on Columbia

If you are not familiar with Clayworks on Columbia, you should stop by and check out this wonderful ceramics studio at 195 Columbia Street (between Sackett and Degraw). Since 1994, the studio has offered master potters a place to create, provided gallery space and has offered classes to learners of all ages.

Currently, Clayworks is exhibiting the Halloween inspired work of some of its youngest students.
Read on:
"At Clayworks on Columbia, things got a little spooky during the Children's Clay Class fall session. With Halloween approaching, the students, first through sixth graders, made ghosts, pumpkins, witches, black cats and other eerie creatures out of clay. The class meets weekly on Sunday mornings to turn mud into magic bringing endless imagination and inspiration. Their teacher, Demetria Chappo, a local Brooklyn ceramic artist, teaches the young clayers, beginning and advanced students aged 6-13, ceramic techniques on the wheel and handbuilding, like pinching, coiling, centering and slab-work. Some of their past projects have included banks, lanterns, face mugs, treasure chests and rattles.

The recent Halloween inspired work from the Kids Class will be on display October 30th through November 10th in the Clayworks Gallery Window at 195 Columbia Street (Sackett and Degraw).

The next Children's Clay Sundays begins November 3rd. For more information visit www.clayworksoncolumbia.org, or contact 917-428-3128 or info@clayworksoncolumbia.org."
