Ceramics 101 Workshop

Offered in conjunction with our special exhibition Designed for Flowers: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics, this one-day workshop will take you into the galleries to find inspiration for your own ceramic masterpiece. Students will then return to the studio with instructor and professional artist Amanda Pellerin to hand-build their own work of art. Slabs and coils of clay will be combined to create organic or geometric forms with pressed and incised designs. Pieces will be kiln fired and ready for pick-up in three weeks. This class is offered again on April 27, 2014.

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
