Participants will work independently with daily input from the highly-respected John Gill, who will be joined by international visiting artist In-Chin Lee. Participants to this intensive studio program will be provided individual workspaces with the potential to explore a full range of ceramic techniques.

He developed his understanding of Western and Eastern ceramics as a product of his childhood upbringing in both cultures. Today, In-Chin is an internationally recognized potter celebrated for wood fired work. He is well known for mentoring students by structuring non-traditional learning experiences.
