Three potters will display their functional work in this summer exhibition. With a focus on creating well-designed, balanced functional pottery, each artist brings a unique approach to his or her art.
NICHOLAS BIVINS slip-casts meticulously created forms. He received his BFA from University of Washington and his MFA from Ohio University. Nicholas is currently a resident at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT.
TARA DAWLEY throws and carves her handmade pottery. She is a functional potter at 323Clay in Independence, Missouri.
MIKE JABBUR has been the Studio Manager at Santa Fe Clay for the last three years. He throws, stretches and assembles his wares. He received his BA in Graphic Design from Virginia Tech and his MFA in Ceramics from Ohio University. This will be his farewell show at Santa Fe Clay, as he has taken a position at The College of William & Mary in Virginia this fall.
In addition, the three artists will be teaching a one-day DECORUM workshop at Santa Fe Clay on Saturday, June 11 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. They will be discussing and demonstrating their individual approaches to making functional pots. Please check it out and call Santa Fe Clay to sign up for this event! There is still room for more attendees!
