A NOTE FROM JEN:
Putting out our OPEN sign on May 14th was a breath of fresh Spring air for me! I am so thankful for the opportunity to continue forward in our “inspiring” mission at Judah Studios. To help ease people back into “normal-ness”, we will be limiting the size of our Studio workshops for awhile, running extra sessions as needed. Please contact the Studio ASAP, to register for any workshops you are interested in. When possible, we will host some classes outside on our beautiful Alchemy Concrete decorative patio areas. I’m sure everyone understands the suggested social distancing guidelines & that each person will be responsible for their own personal protection as they feel is necessary while visiting Judah Studios.
“Featured Artist of the Month”
I’m Gary Landowski, I was born in Stevens Point WI and now reside in Custer WI. My interest in clay began in High School. My ceramic interest took a back seat in my life for about 20 years as I focused on my family. It would not return until my daughter took up ceramics in High School and then in college as she was majoring in ceramics.
She asked her Mom to come work in clay, Mom suggested taking me and I accepted the offer and my interest was once again reborn. I then started making pots again, then I discovered that I could work with the clay that I had on my own property. I was always fascinated by geology, and found out that the clay was most likely an alluvial deposit left behind by the glacier. With some research I had the clay tested and the results were illuminating. I found that the clay on its own was too stiff to work with and needed to add some other elements to it to make it more elastic and workable. Adding just enough elements to not lose the beauty of the natural clay body.
I love how it turns a beautiful brick red when fired. I also enjoy the constant exploration of the glazing process. Elements in my clay really react well to some different glazes, and seem to turn rich and lustrous which I find very satisfying.
The one thing I like about ceramics is the constant learning experience, no matter how long you work at it new challenges arise and you continue to learn. I find that working with clay can be very therapeutic, as you squeeze and form the clay you can feel it taking on a life of its own.
Whether it is making pieces from the size of an acorn to a 103 pound monolithic sculpture as a tribute to all dealing with the issues of Breast Cancer, I’m always fascinated by the new challenges that come with each new piece and try to focus on detail as much as possible.
