ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Debbie studied her craft at the University of Georgia and abroad in Cortona, Italy. For over 30 years she has been both a studio potter and a teacher of ceramics to adults and children on the Georgia coast. Her work consists of wheel-thrown and hand-built stoneware for everyday use.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Elizabeth was raised on neighboring St. Catherine’s Island and it was an amazing adventure. Growing up on a small barrier island made her childhood somewhat unusual. When she was old enough, she rode a boat to school. Her days were filled with exploring the marshes, climbing live oaks, chasing wildlife and sometimes fishing. At the end of the day her family would sit around the table telling island stories and eating supper, probably fish caught that day. These tales ranged from the unbelievable to the latest bird sightings.
The stories of coastal Georgia, especially the memories of Elizabeth’s childhood are the inspiration for her art work. She believes that the best stories and most important conversations take place around the table. Her dinnerware is one of a kind, usable, functional dishwasher safe ceramic art. She is happiest when her stories are passed around the table in the form of a bowl or a plate, to be shared with others. Her fun and functional tableware is a reflection of her childhood memories. All of her work is made by hand and no two are ever exactly the same.
The focus of this class is on hand building and how to finish a piece with surface decoration and glazing. Pieces can be picked up after firing. Classes are ongoing and students can start at any time.
Students who attend St. Simons Elementary and Glynn Middle can ride the bus to GVA. We will meet them at the stop and escort them to class. Contact us for more details.
