On Monday last week a group of students and their teacher from the nearby ORME SCHOOL visited the Ceramics studio for a morning workshop.[text: David Hutchens]
We concluded our workshop with an opportunity to carve a design into the bells we made. Hands on start to finish … from the earth itself … exploring the possibilities of creative expression through the most unpretentious materials. The ORME students were great … very focused and engaging.
from teacher Brenda Lestock:
We had a wonderful time at Arcosanti!! The name of the class was Ceramics and the students were as follows:
The Orme School of Arizona Ceramics class had the unique opportunity to visit Arcosanti, for a Soleri Bell workshop, under the instruction of renown ceramist David Hutchens.
Students were able to learn about the overall process of how Soleri Bells are made through plaster and silt cast pouring. Each student participated in the pouring of the clay and the carving of the result. The Orme School of Arizona was very privileged to have this wonderful workshop.
Thank you so much,
