July 10, 2013 Clay Club report

Yo Clubbers,

I want to thank Susan and Steve for hosting the Club last night. We had a great time in Weaverville NC. Susan Clusener and Stephen Foehner hosted at their Rabbit Ridge Studio.  Susan showed one of her new works:

Not sure of the title but I think it is a California Aster.  

She then did a demo of how she makes her colored porcelain.  And described how she makes the parts and then "sews" them together.  Here are some more images:

Then Stephen Foehner did a demo of sodium silicate on a thrown cylinder and the crackle effect you get. I will post both videos soon. 

He also showed some of his recent soda fired pieces!

Thanks again to all who came and brought such great food. Loved the humous dips!  Next month is at Kyle Carpenter and Karen Newgard's studio in Asheville. 

Also wanted to thank Emily and Tria for organizing everything! 

 See ya.
