Today we had a pleasure of hosting two demonstrations of working with clay and porcelain by Jeremy Nichols and Katharina Klug. A small potter's wheel found it's place at the back of the gallery as well as other tools of the trade (including a credit card valued for it's sharp edges by Katharina). 

Having shown us around the gallery and explaining her curatorial choices, Katharina jumped behind the wheel to demonstrate how she approaches throwing. It was really interesting to find out about her background and inspirations behind the work. We really loved old photographs of Katharina's mother, who is also a potter. 

This was the first time we live-streamed events in the gallery on Instagram. We will definitely make it a standard practice since so many people tuned in today! The opening weekend of 'A Fine Line' was a definite success but this is just the beginning. Please see our event page for next weekend's schedule.
