Wayne Cardinalli Workshop

We had a really fantastic workshop with Wayne Cardinalli on October 20th.  Wayne brought tools, tricks, tips and pots for us to discuss, and admire.  He is a very effective speaker leaving many of us with much to think about with regards to where our pottery goes from here.  There were experienced and fairly new potters in attendance and everyone enjoyed themselves and got something from the day.  Wayne talked about wheel throwing, hand building, surface decoration, tools, the ergonomics of throwing and wedging and the passion needed to make great pots.  You can see more of Wayne’s work here
