Roy Brown Workshop

From Feb. 27th-March 2nd GACA, St. Edwards Univ. Ceramics Dept. and Sunset Canyon Pottery co-hosted our first Guest Artist Workshop.

Cowboy Potter, Roy Brown from New Mexico, amazed the audience with his chattered textures on thrown vessels. He amused us with his personal story of a 30 year journey with pottery and informed us with his take on tool making. Roy is not only a master potter, he is also an accomplished metalsmith. The addition of hand crafted platter stands, steel handles and talismans in the form of feathers, oak leaves and other natural elements add a unique dimension to his beautifully decorated pottery. Roy also met with the St. Edwards Ceramics classes. While demonstrating his skills, he gave the students a hands on experience with the potters' wheel. The cowboy/teacher knew just how to lasso their undivided attention. On Friday night Roy, the philanthropist, gave a lecture and donated a portion of his sales to raise funds for the Dripping Springs Public Library. Roy is truly one-of-a-kind and we were delighted to have him as our first visiting artist.
