All teens are invited to join local potters Joseph Sand and Dawn Tagawa, who will provide guidance as participants get to work. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library and in partnership with the Randolph Arts Guild, the Pottery Slam is free and all supplies are provided.
Completed pieces will be fired and placed on display at the library for a few weeks, and then returned to their makers.
He operates Joseph Sand Pottery near Randleman, featuring functional and sculptural wood-fired ceramics.
Tagawa’s work, which can be purchased online through Etsy, has been recognized in numerous area exhibitions and craft shows. She believes good pottery should have depth, character and flow.
Her aim is to create pieces where the parts merge to form a whole that is intriguing and pleasing to the eye as well as to the touch.
