    2014 Ceramics Symposium

    Every two years, the Lawrence Arts Center hosts six nationally recognized ceramicists in a symposium on topics central to the contemporary ceramics art world. This rare opportunity offers a chance to interact and observe ceramic artists working in the top of the field. Over the course of two days, this select group of artists are active in studios at the Lawrence Arts Center demonstrating sculpting processes, wheel throwing, surface decoration and glazing, representing a diverse range of techniques and approaches to ceramic art.  The six artists are paired up in three studios at the Arts Center, to demonstrate their techniques and encourage dialogue with the audience. Attendees are encouraged to visit each of the three studios throughout the two day symposium on Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11 from 9:30am to 4:30pm. For more information and a list of the artists, visit the Lawrence Arts Center website.

    Eric will be attending the Ceramics Symposium with several of his students from Doane College. His teaching philosophy includes encouraging his students to continue their education outside of his classroom, and the Ceramics Symposium will allow his students the opportunity to learn from six exceptional artists.
