Massachusetts’ poets Longfellow, Whitman, Thoreau and Gibran celebrated the potter in their writings and reflected on the forming of clay as a metaphor for life in various ways. Pied Potter, Rick Hamelin, will demonstrate “throwing” at the pottery wheel while exploring the verses and the historical connections of Massachusetts to these poets. Participants will make a pinch pot, (cup made from a ball of clay by pinching the clay with the thumb and finger) to take home.
