Clayworks showroom reopening
Brattleboro Clayworks will reopen its showroom Saturday following closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The showroom features ceramics by members whose wheel-thrown and hand-built work -- mugs, cups, bowls and other items such as bird whistles. There will also be new work done by Andrea Matthews, Annie Lauterbach, Judith Thomas and Mucuy Bolles — members whose limitations from being home sent them in new directions.
Annie Lauterbach, a pro at wheel-thrown pieces from teapots to mugs, bowls and plates that feature her distinctive glazing, many enhanced with animals, birds and flowers, has experimented over these past months with a Japanese process called Kurinuki, wherein interior shape is hollowed out from a solid, shaped block of clay.
In addition, the work of Alan Steinberg, one of the Clayworks' founders and teacher of hand building techniques, Billie Stark, Jennifer Henske and Gosia Mosiej are on exhibit and for sale.
The showroom will be open every Saturday in August, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Brattleboro Clayworks is at 532 Putney Road, beneath Friends of the Sun. Masks are required. For more information about the studio and showroom, go to
