Paulus Berensohn 1933-2017

Paulus Berensohn 1933-2017

Celebrating a Fully Creative Life

The fully creative life of Paulus Berensohn, artist, dancer, potter, teacher, journal maker, philosopher and deep ecologist is being celebrated by the many people whose lives he touched. His 1970s book, "Finding One's Way with Clay",  is where many came to know him and his philosophy of ceramics. A 2013 documentary, "To Spring from the Hand: The Life and Work of Paulus Berensohn", tells the story of a long life of compassionate, creative contemplation. How lucky we are that he so generously shared himself with us.

Jen, in her usual fashion, wowed our guests with her unique throwing and carving skills. For the first time ever we live-streamed a small part of her demonstration and even took a few questions from the Facebook audience.

The National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition

The National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition

The Future of Ceramics is Bright!

NCECA offers an exciting opportunity to see and hear what is going on in the ceramic field. Jim and I always enjoy seeing and being a sponsor of the K-12 Ceramic Exhibition which is an important part of NCECA every year. In its 20th year it has grown from a small show to one of national stature featuring work of students from across the country. In a time when we watch funding for the arts disappear it is reassuring to see that this show is thriving. The 2017 show was one of the best ever. Each successive year confirms that when good teachers and their students come together with the common goal of excellence in ceramic art, great things happen.
