Summer Workshops at the Dougherty


I'm introducing new workshops at the DAC in Austin this summer. Coming very soon is "Saucy Pouring Pots" on Monday 23 June. This one-day hands-on workshop will offer both hand building and wheel throwing possibilities. At $60 for a full day, it's a great way to squeeze in some quality clay time between summer travels.

 
July 21st is "Building with Original Textures" and more to come.

Featured artist at 18 Hands Gallery in Houston

For the month of May and continuing into June I have new work exhibiting at 18 Hands Gallery in Houston TX. This gallery shows fantastic ceramics artists from all over the country as well as some of us Texans. If you're ever in Houston, you'll be surprised at the high level of clay art and their creative gallery space.

Art at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport

Flying into or out of Austin between now and mid-May? Near Gate 11 just to the right of Bookpeople is a glass pylon case with a handful of artwork from yours truly. I am in one of the ten cases dedicated for three months to an exhibition of current work by Austin artists. The cases are stunning and the ABIA's gallery coordinator has done an excellent job of curating an interesting group of artists.

Workshops at the Dougherty

This spring I'll be giving one-day workshops at the Dougherty Arts Center in Austin. Register over the phone at 512-974-4040. Fun times ahead! Below is the DAC press release:

NEW!

Building with Original Textures Workshop

Jennifer Hill

Monday                        $60 / 1 day                    10 AM – 5 PM               May 12, 2014

The goal of this hands-on workshop is to learn fun and interesting ways to incorporate your own unique textured surface into hand-built vessels. Students need to bring a few tactile objects (example: shells, kitchen utensils, random hardware) to create repeated texture into clay, which we will build into pots using variations on traditional techniques. Your favorite texture will become a personal tool as we create clay stamps that can be fired and used again and again. We will bisque fire your work for pick-up if you are not a current DAC student; current DAC students are welcome to glaze their work in their class. This workshop will meet for six hours with a scheduled lunch.  Limit 12 students.
