Joel Huntley's Ceramic Demonstration

Huntley with AH363 students.

Joel Huntley, a local potter, recently demonstrated 18th century ceramic techniques for Prof. Martin's class, "Early American Decorative Arts: 1620-1840" at the Art Lofts.  Techniques included: slip trailing, joggling, and mocha diffusion, seen here in the photograph.   This process employs a tobacco and oxide mixture that, when dripped onto the slip, creates spider-like motifs.  Huntley owns the Wisconsin Pottery in Columbus, Wisconsin, and his work is featured at the Smithsonian Institution, among other locations.
