Tom Radca Pottery Workshop @ Colorado Mountain College in Edwards

Tom Radca’s pottery designs have been treasured for their marvelous depth of color and lustrous highlights.

Tom Radca’s pottery designs have been treasured for their marvelous depth of color and lustrous highlights. Expertly handcrafted in the artisan’s rural Ohio barn studio, Radca’s trademark large scale designs feature 36″ diameter plates and vessels measuring up to 60″ in height.

Beginning at the potter’s wheel, Radca often works with as much as 50 pounds of clay. The warmth and splendor of Radca’s pieces are attributed to his carefully developed firing process. Color and effects result from controlling the temperature of firing and by introducing combustible materials to the kiln environment near the end of the firing process – a process he calls “Painting with Fire.”

After the pots are fired and allowed to cool, Radca applies muriatic acid that eats away at carbon buildup and exposes the color underneath. It took years of exploration for Radca to perfect this technique, as well as his unique firing process.

Tom Radca, Ceramic Workshop will be held on (Wednesday/Thursday), July 16 & 17, noon – 6pm at the Edwards Campus of CMC. Spend two days in the Colorado Mountain College, Edwards Campus pottery studio with famous artist Tom Radca. He will be teaching throwing and demonstrating glaze techniques. To register call Colorado Mtn. College (970)-569-2900.

The workshop is $100.
