#Clay as #cultural material remembers and permeates our lives. When we see all the hands at work, hear all the voices, learn all the stories, we collaborate to dismantle institutional inequities and empower communities erased from the cannon, classroom and museum. We recenter clay, flux and transform. Hear more from Lauren Sandler, @laurensandlerstudio at her lecture, "Recenter: Decolonize the Clay"

@didemmert_pottery in the #process room at #nceca2017! Mert will demonstrate using soft #slabs within bisque slump molds to create her signature ovaled #bowl forms. She will apply terra #sigillata and AMACO Velvet #Underglaze on the bowl to create a sense of playfulness directed through the #color palette, while retaining a minimalistic #design.
