Mary Barringer: Surface and Forming

Montgomery Potters will begin our fall season with a presentation by Mary Barringer. She is a well-known and influential presence in the clay community. Her hand-built, functional pottery is in collections across the country. Mary will be speaking with us from her studio in Shelburne Falls in western Massachusetts, and will offer us a demonstration of her distinctive approach to surface and forming.

Mary graduated from Bennington College in 1972 where she studied ceramics and sculpture, and has worked in clay since, as a studio artist, a teacher, and lecturer. As editor of Studio Potter from 2004-2014, Mary steered that publication to be the rigorous platform for critical ceramic discussion for which it is known. In these capacities, Mary has contributed immensely to the ceramic art field over a long, devoted career.

From her studio in Shelburne Falls, MA, influential potter Mary Barringer will demonstrate her distinctive approach to surface and forming using successive slips and manipulations to achieve a surface of depth and character.

Registration closes at 5 pm on 9/13. You will receive a Zoom link one hour in advance of the program.

A video recording of her presentation will be available to registered guests for 30 days post-presentation.
