The Elemental Clay
Ceramics by Helen Kunzman

Reception: Saturday, April 1
(Opening Day)

The Elemental Clay "On the potter’s wheel I feel harmony with the universe. Throwing clay on the wheel is an intuitive and spontaneous process. Transformation can happen when you push to unexpected places. And if the clay can survive the transformation - then the alchemy can happen…"

 -Helen Kunzman
