Gulf Coast Clay Conference 2010

Just wanted to let you know that I will be demonstrating at the 1st Annual Gulf Coast Clay Conference in Pensacola Florida, February 11 - 13, 2010.

John Britt
will visit and demonstrate and talk on glazes; he will present a slideshow Thursday evening. His demonstrations will continue on Friday.

Gulf Coast Clay Conference

And the cost is only $95.00 ($25.00 for degree students).

Noted art professor and clay artist Bill Clover (right -->) will host a workshop entitled "Can you handle it?" Friday afternoon at 1:00 PM.

Gulf Coast area artists Patrick Bodine, Steve Dark, Anne Webb and Jason Stokes will demonstrate all day Friday.

The Saturday activity is the Woodstoke Pottery and Kiln Festival on Feb. 13 at the Kilnwalk site in Navarre FL. The Anagama kiln will be opened and unloaded after the winter's firing and the Ralph Howards Phillips Groundhog kiln will be on display. Kiln Walk logo mugs, cups and bowls will be on sale for Kiln Walk Society funding. This festival is open to the public as well as Conference attendees.

Here are some of the kilns that they have. This is an anagama that they will be firing and will unload on Saturday of the conference.

Here is a Ground Hog Kiln that they relocated to their location and now fire. It is a beauty!

Anyway all the details are on the link and it should be loads of fun!

Hope to see you there,

John Britt
