In this class, students will gain experience using hard and soft slabs, bisque molds, and terra sigalatta. This class is open to all ages and skill levels.

Jared Peterson was born in Silver City, New Mexico but grew up in West Virginia. A graduate of West Virginia University in English and Ceramics, Jared is proud of his South Western and Appalachian roots and explores them in poetry and ceramic art.
Traveling throughout the world to pursue his love for art and English, Jared was a multiple time short-term resident at Red Lodge Clay Center in Red Lodge, Montana; studied ceramics abroad in Jingdezhen, China; and recently fulfilled a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) grant in Perak, Malaysia. In conjunction with making ceramics and writing, Jared has a deep fascination with cultural icons like Macho Man Randy Savage and Dennis Rodman and frequently incorporates their ideas in his work. When without a pen or studio, Jared loves being outside, making quick witted jokes with friends, and most of all, petting a good dog.
