Mud Masters Symposium

July 17, 2010


Join us for this full day workshop with Ohio's finest ceramic artists...

Keynote Speaker: Don Pilcher
Lectures/Demonstrations by: Bill Brouillard, Jack Earl, Gail Russell 
Gallery Visit: Form, Function & Figure Exhibition
Don Pilcher studied with the greats in ceramics. He made a successful living for himself teaching and reached national acclaim as an artist. Then he chucked it all; eventually reinventing himself as the illustrious "Georgette Ore" and other unique marketing personas…and he/she’s been going strong ever since. Don will speak on his reinvented life and career. You won’t want to miss his humorous insights.
Bill Brouillard recently received the Cleveland Arts Prize Lifetime Achievement Award and he’s still got plenty of life to lead. His recent works reference traditions of Majolica work and palace art pots. “With humor, whimsy and machine age technology”, Bill injects familiar objects into the decorative/commemorative object. Join Bill in his journey with culture and technology.
Jack Earl has had a long and remarkable career. Inspired by early porcelain figures, Jack has developed this off-beat, humorous and narrative style of portraying figures from his adventures in rural Ohio. “I want my work to reflect life. The more of life the viewer can know and feel from viewing the piece, the more successful the piece is”. Learn more from a master.
Gail Russell established Peachblow Pottery in 1986 and has been working in porcelain for most of her 35 years in ceramics. Gail produces reduction fired, high temperature, functional porcelain wares that are influenced by Asian forms and glazes, and of course, the natural world of Ohio. Enjoy what Gail has to share.
