  1. Melissa Foss Workshop: Sounds of the Americas – Introduction to the Ocarina WS02 –Sunday, 11-2pm, October 17 & 24, 2021 Fee: $100 member/$110 non-member Ancient peoples of all times and latitudes have used an elaborate weave of myth, art and music to communicate their world visions. In the Americas we can connect with this heritage through a rich tradition of musical instruments whose forms, scales and sounds give us a glimpse into the extraordinary cultures that created them. In this hands-on workshop we will take a journey back in time through the Ocarina, a type of ceramic flute that has been produced across Central and South America for thousands of years. The unique sounds of this instrument awaken the memory of our common ancestry, recalling the songs of the birds and animals that inhabit our most sacred natural landscapes. All clay, tools and firing included. Class size will remain at reduced capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory. Bio Melissa Foss is a musician, instrument-maker and composer hailing from Maryland and Vermont. She received her BA in Art History from James Madison University in Virginia. For the last decade she has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she completed her Master’s degree in Musical Creation, New Technologies and Traditional Arts at the National University of Argentina. There she taught in the Bachelor's program in Indigenous, Popular and Classical Music of the Americas, and was a soloist with the university’s Orchestra of Indigenous Instruments and New Technologies, performing in Argentina and touring abroad in Europe and Central America. Her composition “Hanblecheyapi,” which was composed using a collection of her own instruments from the three Americas, was one of the International Rostrum of Composers’ 12 recommended works in 2018 and has been broadcast by the BBC and other radio programs in Finland, Portugal and Austria. 21F_WS02 –Sunday, 11-2pm, October 17 & 24, 2021 Fee: $100 members; $110 non-members Contact Matthew Hyleck at matt.hyleck@baltimoreclayworks.org for more information.

  3. From the album: Ocarinas, Flutes, & Aerophones

    These three instruments represent the experimentation with building, glazing, and firing ocarinas (flutes) over the period of 2013, 2014, and 2015. The shadowbox idea is the direction I plan to take for displays, although the lighting may need some help by a minor adjustment in the box depth. Friends here on the CAC Forum might recognize the "Witch is Dead" themed piece in the middle as a spin-off of a Community Challenge project.
