Creating a Series w/ Tom DeYoung

Saturday April, 28th 10AM – 2:30 PM

Have you wanted to create your own set of mugs, cups, dinner ware…? Have you thought, “I can’t make two pots that look alike, never mind being close in size.” This workshop will work to; set up your “office/desk”, building your skills to be more consistent, creating what is in your head and on your paper, and finishing the series. This workshop will provide demonstrations of creating mugs, bowls, handles, lids; to provide you with habits and exercises that build your skills, fine tune your skills and help find what makes your pieces unique yet the “same.” Come with ideas and drawings of at least one series that you want to create.

Tom DeYoung has a B.A. in art education with ceramics focus from Adrian College. Tom worked for two major production potteries as a potter for over five years, making their pots. Tom now works on his own creations as Blue Point Pottery, with commissions for; a local brewery, businesses and individuals, and working in high school special education.
