Upcoming Workshop at Ohio Ceramics Supply    
  I would like to especially invite you to take a look at the many events we have scheduled for our grand re-opening, Sept. 25-27.

In addition to the Fong Choo and Janis Mars Wunderlich workshops on Friday and Saturday we have these presentations and exhibits:
  • Dave Gamble will represent Skutt Kilns and lead a discussion on kiln usage and maintenance.  His workshop will be held on Friday and again on Saturday.
  • Kevin Nguyen, owner and designer of Xiem Studio Tools, will demonstrate the many ways you can use Xiem tools (Friday and again on Saturday). Kevin will also have a booth at which you'll be able to use the tools.
  • Tracy Gamble will be on hand to discuss Amaco products
  • Standard Clay and Laguna Clay will each have a booth and are looking forward to answering questions about their clay bodies and dry materials
And we have added a special clay event for Sunday, Sept 27:"Join us as we welcome new ceramic professors: Peter Christian Johnson (Peter's website) at Kent State, and Seth Nagelberg (Seth's website) at Cleveland Institute of Art, to northern Ohio. We'll also have Eva Kwong (Eva's website) on hand - stop by and congratulate Eva as she takes the reigns of the ceramic program at the University of Akron. We'll provide hotdogs and drinks. 
Also on Sunday, from 10 am to 2 pm, we're challenging the alumni of the various ceramic programs in northern Ohio to a bowl-throwing contest. You'll need to assemble a team of 5 - each team member gets 10 minutes to throw as many bowls as they can in that time. We'll have three wheels and 4 1-hour time slots, so we have room for 12 teams. The winning team will earn a $300 gift certificate for their school, $200 for second place and $100 for third. Clay and tools wil be provided.  The bowls will be fired and we will work with local area elementary-high schools to glaze them for an Empty Bowls project this fall.  To register: email rzumpone @ with the name of your school and preferred time slot. A school can be represented by more than one team."  For full information please visit the events page ont he OCS website:  We hope to see you in September.  Be sure to tell your students about the 20% discount!
