Melting Pot: Celebrating Pottery from Around the World with Pied Potter Hameli

July 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Thursday, July 28th  6:00 pm – 7:30 pm**
The Jacob Edwards Library is pleased to welcome Pied Potter Hamelin. Rick has been potting since 1976 and became committed to learning about the historical redware potters after learning of the Colonial and Early American industries that existed in my native Central Massachusetts.
Pied Potter Hamelin makes redware pottery that is thrown on the wheel. After a drying period, my pots are bisqued and following the first firing they are covered with a lead-free glaze, of my own formulation, and fired again. A food-safe antiquing finish is applied to the unglazed surfaces as a final step.
During the presentation Rick will throw some pots and make the skill seem effortless!
**Please note the earlier start time for the program.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Southbridge Local Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
