The Art Association in Roxbury will be holding its monthly meeting on Thursday, March 6th at 7:15 PM at the Roxbury Senior Center, 72 Eyland Avenue, Succasunna, NJ.
A pottery demonstration will be given by Heather Tourville, the owner and operator of “The Cracked Pot Studio” in Lake Hiawatha, NJ. Heather received her BA from the University of Minnesota. Her college years included many ceramic courses. After graduation she continued working in clay from her home in Minnesota. In 2012 she moved to New Jersey and became an assistant teacher at “The Center for Clay Art” where she taught the pottery wheel, hand building and the techniques of glazing. In 2013 she opened her own pottery studio in New Jersey. She is a member of the “Potters’ Guild of New Jersey”.
Heather’s artistic talent, creativity and passion for pottery show in her work. Her love of experimentation leads to original, interesting pieces that burst with color. She will demonstrate how to create basic vessels on the pottery wheel. If any member would like to participate, there will be leather-hard ceramic tiles to carve and paint with under glazes. Tools, brushes and paints will be supplied, but participants should bring if possible, paper towels and a container of water for cleaning brushes. Members may bring their own brushes if they desire. Heather will fire and return the tiles at the next meeting. The tiles will cost $10 a person; this includes cost of transportation, glaze, clay and firing. Members will also have the opportunity to try their hand on the pottery wheel after the demonstration.
