‘I am at a point in my personal time line that crosses back and forth between the realm of utilitarian function and sculpture.’
Jeff Shapiro lived in Japan for 9 years, where he experienced a formal wood-fire potter’s apprenticeship, before moving back to the USA where he still lives and works.
He will be demonstrating his methods of slab construction using templates, working on large pieces including a five foot tall triangular bottle. He will also show how he makes thick platters from recycled clay, and hand carves tea bowls.
