In May, female sea turtles lay hundreds of eggs along the Alabama Gulf Coast.  Come Mid-July, thousands of baby sea turtles make a mad dash to the safety of the breaking waves! Many of these babies will return to the same coastline to lay their own clutch of eggs throughout the coming years.

Join ESAC and Steve Dark to create your own mini clutch of hatchlings.  Steve will guide you as you hand build three little loggerheads destined for greatness!

Pieces will be fired, glazed, and returned two weeks after the workshop is completed.

“PERSONALLY THE MOST EXCITING ASPECT OF BEING A CERAMIST IS THE EXPLORATION OF PROCESS. AS A YOUNG ARTIST, I WAS INSTANTLY SEDUCED BY THE POWER OF THE POTTERS WHEEL AND HAVE BEEN EVER SINCE. I TEND TO WORK ON A SERIES OF 6 TO 8 PIECES AT A TIME, THROWING ON THE WHEEL THE PRIMARY FORMS AND DECORATIVE PARTS. WHEN THE CLAY IS AT JUST THE RIGHT STAGE OF DRYNESS I BEGIN THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS. TO THE HOLLOW SCULPTURAL FORM I ATTACH THE FINER DETAILS, CUTTING, PUSHING AND PULLING; ADDING SLABS, COILS, AND PULLED HANDLES UNTIL THE DESIRED FINAL  PRODUCT IS ACHIEVED.
