BOBBY FREE Brought It ALL to Us at His Recent Demo!

The Potters and Sculptors Club hosted artist, Bobby Free, who discussed his lifetime of experiences that he crammed into his 36 years during his demonstration at our beautiful Laguna Woods Studio. As artist, studio potter and teacher, he has a comprehensive background in all aspects of ceramics. He has repaired and built kilns, managed The American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, spent two of his ‘early’ years as a production potter and currently is the Senior Lab Technician at Saddleback College.

He began his demo with a slideshow of his collective experiences including work done during his MFA studies and multiple ‘Artist in Residence’ programs in which he participated in China, South Korea and the United States.

His ‘hands on’ demonstration started with the coils and handbuilding technique and then proceeded to throwing a set of cups. Bobby showed us how to make a scoring tool out of toothpicks, pulled handles directly off each cup throw and ended with his unique style of decorating a thrown pot.



Librarians Corner by Mary Doyle


New books added recently to our Library: "Simple Pottery" by Sara Pearch and Geraldine Christy and "New Ceramic Surface Design" by Molly Hatch. I have purchased it for our Club after reading good reviews and seeing the colorful layout with spiral binding.

Books may be borrowed by members for two weeks except for those labeled DNR which may be read in the studio only. Remember to ask a Supervisor to open the shelves for you. We also have new Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making Illustrated, Clay Times, Sculpture, and Sculpture Review. They are filed newest on top in the fat binders. The library is a valuable resource for potters of all abilities.
