Trial by Fire – Raku-fired Ceramics
Potters’ Guild of Hamilton & Region Mentorship Exhibition
January 3-26, 2014
Opening reception: Friday January 3, 7-9:30pm.
The purpose of the mentorship group is to provide an opportunity for Raku potters who were accepted into the program, to take their work in a new direction under the guidance of a senior artist within the Potters’ Guild for the duration of one year. The potters have been working individually and as a group to find their voice within the Raku firing process, encouraging and helping each other to overcome obstacles along the way. Each potter will be showing their new work for the first time, in groupings or small installations at the Carnegie Gallery in Dundas during the month of January.
The Potters are Kai Eichenbaum, Frans Rood, Diane Irons, Ann Randeraad, Lisa Skog, Debra McBride, and Donna Thomson. The Mentor is Catherine Weir.
