Deborah Schwartzkopf’s Inspiring Workshop

Deborah Schwartzkopf Workshop-August 10-12, 2018 at sfclayworks Over the weekend of August 10-12, 2018, sfclayworks was excited to have Seattle ceramics artist Deborah Schwartzkopf in our studio. On Friday evening, the workshop weekend began with a gallery opening of Deb's beautiful ceramics in sfclayworks "Front Office Gallery". The exhibit of Deb's ceramics gave studio members, especially those unfamiliar with her ceramics, an opportunity to see her amazing work. In conjunction with the gallery exhibit, Deb gave a very interesting slide lecture-presentation that we offered free to the public.  At sfclayworks, we feel it is important to make the evening event open to everyone; it was nice to see some folks who are not sfclayworks members in the audience. During the slide lecture, Deb shared with us [...]
