Kevin Crowe, owner and potter at Tye River Pottery in Nelson County, VA, will visit the Hood campus July 6-11 to teach a workshop on throwing large forms. Students will develop alternative methods to throw and center large pots. A focus will be on gaining the more elastic understanding of the relationship between the object and the space it occupies necessary to throw large forms.
Crowe is widely known for producing wood-fired functional stoneware with strong Asian and English roots. His work ranges from 4-inch tea bowls to 48-inch vases.
The workshop fee is $485 for non-tuition students, who may register at www.secure.hood.edu/ceramics. Ceramic Arts degree and certificate students should call 301-663-3131 for enrollment information.
