About the Event
A little bit about our host Jaimie + Icky Love Pottery
My name is Jaimie Nagle and I am a ceramic artist and writer. I began my journey with clay at the University of Hawaii while studying for my doctorate in Creative Writing. Since then, I fell in love with clay---it's texture and malleability, it's gift of failure and success--the perfect metaphor for the ebb and flow of human experience. After having my first child, I decided to further my study and journey with clay and developed Icky Love Pottery, a small batch ceramic studio where I make my own work and offer workshops. Seeing the way people form a relationship with making something from the earth brings me great joy.
In this 2.5 hr workshop we will make candle-holders/lanterns that will utilize a few methods of handbuilding with stoneware clay: pinching, coiling, attaching, and piercing. You will create a unique piece that will allow the light to shine through your piece. We can light candles inside of these personal creations in rememberence of our children. This workshop will be limited to 9 participants.
