Hungarian master potters visit village

The John Bryan Community Pottery is sponsoring Hungarian potters Vera and Ferenc Bognar for a week of public studio time culminating in a workshop on Saturday. The event is the pot shop’s first international workshop.

The public is invited to observe the artists at work on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 5 p.m.–8 p.m., with a suggested donation of $5 each evening. Each studio event will focus on traditional Hungarian forms, including water jugs on Thursday and vessels for children on Friday.

On Saturday, the public is invited to an all-day workshop, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., during which participants will view demonstrations by the visiting artists. Opportunities for hands-on participation will also be included. The cost for the workshop is $45; those interested should call 937-767-9022, or email jbcp.ys.com.
