Ann Murdoch Geiger: Hand Building in Clay
Ann has been an artist most of her life. She graduated from Elmira College with a degree is Studio Art, followed by a 35 year career as a product designer for Corning Glass and Armstrong World Industries. Her skills as a problem solver and a designer have been the perfect lead into her rediscovery of hand built pottery.
Wonderful clay pieces can be made without a pottery wheel!
The clay slab is the building block of hand built pottery. Using a slab roller or heavy rolling pin, slabs are created with the goal of consistent thickness.
Ann will demonstrate the building of a functional piece, using slabs and techniques she employs with all her work. She will also have a few examples of completed work.
Ann teaches hand building classes at the Smithy Clay studio in Cooperstown. She and her husband Bill live in a sweet historic farmhouse on Rt 33, that they are lovingly renovating.
