Joe will also demonstrate how he makes trays with slabs and how he uses thick slip. Each day students will have the opportunity to make their own work and be assisted by Joe as they incorporate new techniques into their own work. There will be a power point presentation and discussions about any questions participants want to pursue.

Owner: Narrowland Pottery, Wellfleet Massachusetts 1993 – Present.
I’ve been making functional and decorative pottery in the town of Wellfleet since 1989.
Wellfleet has provided me with a large and dynamic audience of sophisticated
customers and collectors who come to the town to experience the abundant visual and
literary art for which the town is well known. I make things people can use as well as
decorative pots. I fire stone ware and porcelain to cone 10 and have been a long time
part of the semi annual wood firings at Gustin Ceramics.
My dinnerware, lamps, vases, trays, and cover jars are all inspired by the same drive. I
want my pots to be the pots people want to use. Shape, glaze, and function, I take
responsibility for all aspects of the work and hope that it will satisfy it’s purpose and the
soul of it’s owner.
