has come to her subject matter from a love of the countryside and rural
life. Animals of any sort have always fascinated her, but birds
have held a special place since she became a 'mother' to chickens at
the age of eleven. Through them, she has been introduced to an
ancient alliance between human and animal that allowed our ancestors
and their first domesticated creatures to flourish.
combination of functionality and decoration in her vessels is a mirror
of our natural world, where beauty and practicality combine. The
atmospheric variation from wood firing provides the environment for the
inhabitants of her work. Often unpredictable, the ash and
flashing become murky waters and foggy haze, which obscure and reveal
the inhabitants of this world.
Finding Neverland with Chandra DeBuse
Hands on visiting artist workshop Sat-Sun, Sept 27-28
Cost: $100 materials included
$40 non-refundable deposit, remainder due 30 days prior to
In this hands-on
workshop, Chandra will share how she designs playful pottery forms
using simple materials, such as plywood and craft foam through both
handbuilding and wheel-throwing techniques. Students will learn
to energize the clay surface through freehand drawing, direct image
transfer, inlay, sgraffito, and the use of slip, wax, and underglaze to
create a layered and colorful surface. The emphasis will be on
learning and experimentation in the building and decorating
Although the techniques
and discussion will be focused on pottery, the workshop will be
valuable for any student striving to develop a more cohesive
relationship between form and surface in their own clay work.

person. Advance reservations required. Have you ever wondered what it
is like to create pottery on the wheel? This two-hour mini class is
perfect for those who would like an to acquaint themselves with the
medium of clay....or can be used as a means to possibly improve
throwing techniques if already experienced in clay. Instruction,
materials and tools included. Due to the nature of the process it is
not feasible to bring home your work created during this one-time class
(arrangements for work can be made with larger groups). Adults only
please, unless afamily or group of 4 or more reserves the day. Please
dress to get dirty.
If you are a potter please learn from my
mistakes. Make sure you stretch prior to throwing for a long
period of time and stay hydrated. Also, make time for massage.
Pottery can be brutal on the body. This winter I got a
pinched nerve in my arm from working too much. It has taken
months to mend. I will now stay hydrated, take breaks, stretch
and watch the warning signals better. Trust me it is not worth
it! Take care of yourself!

roasting broccoli. Yummm!
4 to 5 pounds broccoli
4 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
Good olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons julienned fresh basil leaves (about 12 leaves)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut the broccoli florets from the thick stalks, leaving an inch or two
of stalk attached to the florets, discarding the rest of the stalks.
Cut the larger pieces through the base of the head with a small knife,
pulling the florets apart. You should have about 8 cups of florets.
Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan large enough to hold them in
a single layer. Toss the garlic on the broccoli and drizzle with 5
tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast for 20
to 25 minutes, until crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets
Remove the broccoli from the oven and immediately toss with 1 1/2
tablespoons olive oil, the lemon zest, lemon juice, pine nuts,
Parmesan, and basil. Serve hot.
