The New Hampshire Potters Guild now has an active website. It is at https://www.nhpottersguild.org/ Members are not required to be NH residents; many are from other NE states and some are from further afield. Among our more well-known members is John Baymore, long a vital moderator, and "resident expert" on this site, as well as being the moving force behind the building of, and ongoing firings of, the beautiful anagama kiln "Fushigigama", located at the New Hampshire Institute of Art's Sharon Art Center, in rural NH. The NH Potters' Guild has its own wood burning community kiln and offers member benefits such as a community raku firing last October, and an invitation to show work in the Biennial Exhibition, held in various locations in the state. The 2017 exhibit was in the coastal city of Portsmouth, NH. Members of the Guild may have a personal Member Bio page, with text and 3 images of work, as well as a link to their own website. The NHPG is a 501c3 non-profit, and has a long, rich history regarding ceramics in NH and the northeast. Annual dues for the calendar year (not prorated) are quite modest, and may be paid directly from the website, where there is also a membership application form.
History of Japanese Ceramics New Hampshire Institute of Art Sharon Art Center Campus CER051 Nov 3 â€“ Dec 8, 2015 (6 weeks) Tuesdays, 6 â€“ 7:30pm Professor John Baymore $149 This series of slide lectures will explore the cultural context in which this art form developed and currently thrives, including the impact of geography, deeply held Shinto and Buddhist beliefs, the lifestyle of the Samurai class, and the impact of the Tea Ceremony on the art. We will look at the production of the Six Ancient Kilns, the Mingei Movement, the work of the Living National Treasures, and look at contemporary trends as new artist-potters throw off the shackles of centuries of tradition. Finally, we will look at how Japanese ceramics had an impact on contemporary American artist-potterâ€™s work, and how Abstract Expressionism impacted the Japanese ceramists.
