Expressive Pots: A Workshop with JACK TROY:
November 17-18, 2007
A major figure and force in the contemporary ceramics field, ceramic artist Jack Troy is known for his wood-fired vessel and container forms, which are found in many private and public collections, including the Smithsonian Institution. His seminal book, Salt Glazed Ceramics, was published in 1977 and Wood-fired Stoneware and Porcelain in 1995. Teacher, writer, potter, and Pennsylvanian, Troy has been awarded two Craft Fellowships for his work in ceramics by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. A workshop and illustrated lecture accompanies the exhibit, which highlights Troy's recent work in stoneware and porcelain from his two anagama-style woodburning kilns. Of his work, he says, "Having made pottery for 45 years, I'm pleased to know that my cups, bowls, and vessels can be found among those of other potters whose work is owned and enjoyed by people who use it every day."
Jack Troy Illustrated Lecture: November 17th, 6 PM at Comerford Theatre followed by a Reception at 7:30 PM.
