Hi Folks
I have added some new Art Deco Style Trim, following
a project I have been working on . The style in some
of the trim reflects the architectural terra Cotta
which is on the outside of a building in NYC. and the
project I am working on is to be on the interior of
the building. SO It has been kind of exciting , and am
involved in some mural work too. is making for
good winter work.
check it out on webpage

Also I have added an Architectural Cermics workshop,
to be taught at the studio (San Diego area) this
June, in addition to the handmade tile workshop. It
will be June 25-28. 4 days.

following is the workshop schedule for the coming
year. Note that
CLAYART (and CM tech editor) Dave FInkelnburg will be
doing 2
Glaze workshops at Revival TIleworks ina. These won't
just be lectures, they will be hands on problem
solving workshops for folks of all levels of glaze

"Glazes Demystified"
is a unique hands-on workshop for those who want an
in-depth understanding of how glazes work, from the
raw materials to the kiln. In two busy days you will

suspension and application, and learn how to easily
design your own glazes with computer software. Dave
Finkelnburg is currently the Technical Editor of
Ceramics Monthly and a studio
potter. He has an MS in Ceramic Engineering from
Alfred University and has lectured about glazes at
high schools , colleges and in workshops across the
U.S. "My goal is to take the mystery out of glaze
science," says Dave. "The most fun I have presenting
a workshop is when someone has an, 'Ah, hah!' moment
regarding glazes.
