SUMMER 2024: The Joy of Throwing off the Hump with Jon Yager - Monday/Thursday, 9:30am

Instructor: Jon Yager
Instructor Bio: In our college art studio, I helped put on a weekend workshop by a Japanese potter. That weekend changed the course of my life. I never really intended to become a potter. I just couldn?t help it. The magic drew me on. I went through a traditional Japanese apprenticeship here in the U.S., fired in a three chamber wood kiln, bought acreage in Maine, cleared land and built buildings, made my own wheel, built wood and gas kilns, made my kiln shelves and posts, mixed my own clay and glazes. Pottery is the interplay of skill, nature and chance. And the goal is all along the path. No matter where you are in the journey, the rewards abound.
