Course Description

Pottery has been a part of human culture for some 50,000 years. Archeological digs from around the world–and in your own backyard—routinely turn up intriguing shards. California’s ample deposits of clay and talc ensured a strong pottery tradition, and California potters have played a leading role in the development of this humble and beautiful craft. Here’s a chance to learn about some of the state’s most interesting clay crafters and to see the results of their skills. Allow OLLI and Ms. Angevine to put works from studios like Arequipa, California Faience, Lagunity, Metlox, Pond Farm, Jade Snow Wong, and Heath before you. Here are treats from right out of the earth!
