We worked in a large second floor studio … always had a nice breeze passing through and we could hear the stream rushing by outside.

THROWING DEMOS by Matt Choi

We were so fortunate to have two of the best workshop interns … Matt Choi and Lindsey Browning.

Matt threw some colored pots for both sessions and proved you can indeed throw a vase riddled with air holes!! Thanks to you both.
