Only 2 Weeks Left To Save $550 Of Tuscany V

29 January 2015 - 09:38 AM

ONLY 9 potters spots and 1 no-potter spot left!!

 

The discounted period ends February 13 for registration for the Tuscany V trip to Italy. We visit Florence and combine our Uffizi visit with the newly opened Vasari Corridor from the Pitti Palace across the Arno to the Uffizi with the Medici collection of self portraits by famous Renaissance painters.

We stay in Faenza and see the International Museum of Ceramic Art (one of the largest collections of historical and contemporary ceramics in the world) plus visit many studios there, the UNESCO World heritage site of Byzantine 5th and 6th century Mosaics on a day trip to Ravena. We'll stay for 6 nights in the medieval town of Certaldo Alto while working at La Meridiana, the International School of Ceramics,  for Dolce Raku and Obvara firings. We will also visit Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. 
Check these sites on the web sites below.

Newcomb Pottery Show At The Gardiner Museum In Toronto, Canada

25 January 2015 - 01:43 PM

The exhibition "Women, Society and Change" will be at the Gardiner Museum from Feb. 5 to May 18. http://www.gardinermuseum.on.ca
It features Pottery metal work and fabric design from the Arts and Crafts movement created by women at Newcomb College. I saw the show in New Orleans last year. Great show of work from the Arts and Crafts Movement which I happen to enjoy.

So if you are near, try to see it.
