April 21, 2010 > Ceramic's demystified
Fremont artist, Akio Aochi, will present a ceramics program in the Olive Hyde Art Center Courtyard, on Wednesday, April 28, starting at 10 a.m. This is an opportunity to watch an expert potter work in his medium.
In addition to building a piece using a ceramic wheel, Aochi will demonstrate his skill in trimming green-ware. Largely creating functional ware, Akio also enjoys making Raku and pit-fired decorative pieces. As a long time member of the Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild, Aochi also teaches at Blossom Hill Crafts Pottery in Los Gatos.
Ceramic art from the Orchard Valley Ceramics Arts Guild will be featured at the Olive Hyde Art Gallery from June 4 to July 1.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. Admission is free. Sponsored by the Olive Hyde Art Guild, members will also provide refreshments for everyone.
