Cottonwood Clay Sculpture

Evelyn Shea

In last month’s issue the Cottonwood Clay Sculpture class invited everyone to artist Deborah Silvis’ presentation of her photo journey through Africa and Amsterdam this summer. We’re happy to announce the date and time of Deborah’s presentation in the Cottonwood Ceramic Room (Room 8) in Sun Lakes. It will be on Wednesday, November 13 at 10:30 a.m. This invitation is open to residents of Sun Lakes, SunBird and the general public. The topic of Deborah Silvis’ presentation is as follows:

House on Fire/Swaziland-South Africa – Under the administration and concept of Jiggs Thorne who was a student at Waterford, this cultural infusion includes an Afro-Shakespearean amphitheatre, gallery and living art concept to bring people together through art, music, sculpture, drama and dance. Images will include outdoor grounds and sculptures made of ceramic tiles and wood carvings; also, Rijksmuseum-Netherlands/Amsterdam taken during the summer of 2014; the images will include architectural designs of the 19th century building, the outdoor sculpture and gardens as well as Dutch artists’ Golden Age paintings within the museum.

Save this date and come early as seating is limited. We are sure you will enjoy this unusual and enriching presentation!

The Cottonwood Clay Sculpture class encourages you to include our Wednesday morning class in your fall/winter schedule! This year-round class meets from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Cottonwood Ceramic Room (Room 8). Come join our students and artists who have been enjoying this artistic adventure for several years!
