MSUM Professor and ceramic Artist Brad Bachmeier has been selected as Artist in Residence for the North Dakota Council on the Arts. As part of his residency, he will will present a pottery workshop on Saturday, July 27 at 11 a.m. at Lewis & Clark State Park. Explore how humans began to use natural clay for pottery and sculpture purposes. Be inspired by the tools and techniques used by Native American Indians, the first pottery makers in ND, to create your own pinch and coil pottery creations. All are welcome to join us at the amphitheater! Materials provided by NDCA. At 4 p.m., there will be a Pottery and Sculpture Technique presentation. Bachmeier will give a lively presentation at the amphitheater about ceramic pottery and sculpture techniques, including a wheel-throwing demonstration. Discover his small and monument scale ceramic projects and artworks that are in permanent collections around the United States, including the White House. Finished works are available for viewing and handling, inspired by both nature and primitive forming and firing techniques used around the globe by many cultures since the beginning of man.
