New Classes at Out of the Fire Studio!

Posted by on Apr 8, 2011 in Blog | Comments Off on New Classes at Out of the Fire Studio!

I’ve been an Artist-in-the-Schools for 8 years or so and now, with the studio, have wanted to teach more classes here. I have had workshops for teachers in Wake County, where they earned C.E.U. credits, a very fun birthday party for a 17 year old young woman and her family and friends, and a teenage guy, who is very serious abut his art. So far, I’ve taught hand building and sculpture in clay to people ages 4 to 97, and would be happy to extend that age range! If you’re interested, or would like more information on these and other classes, please call (336) 376-9091 or...

I have not found a way to keep up with creating my own art, social media, teaching, etc. Not complaining! I’ve been working a lot as an artist-in-the-schools for the last few months and have had the good fortune to be in some nice shows. Big Flowers, recently installed at a school in Wake County, NC With that going on, I haven’t posted any blog entries in a long time. I have been posting to Facebook–as much as I love this blog, I can upload photos and captions and rearrange things so much faster on Facebook. If you get a chance please check out the Out of the Fire Facebook...

Posted by on Dec 9, 2010 in Blog | Comments Off on THE Second Annual Saxapahaw Holiday Open House Tour!!!

I’ve been so busy making art (for the Tour and Christmas commissions), I am late in posting this! This weekend, on December 11 and 12, local artists and business people of Saxapahaw are hosting a Holiday Open House Tour. (Saxapahaw is a small village located about 20 minutes west of Carrboro and between Burlington and Pittsboro.) There’ll be lots of holiday cheer, art, performances, even a tree lighting. Here at Out of the Fire we’ll have free mini classes where you’ll get to play with clay and I can offer some instruction. Not as intense as our regular classes, since...
