About the Event

 Custom  Class organized by Tricia Miller and friends:

3 projects to choose from :

 Tree of LIfe Cross:

Inspired by Mexican folk art, we will be given the instruction to design a hand coiled sculptural cross depicting the biblical Tree of Life  cross of your choice in terra cotta clay. The motifs found in the garden of Eden and then later in Gethsemane are sculpted and juxtaposed to show the beauty and fecundity of embracing the cross. You will use both low and high relief  ceramic sculpting and embossing to build this beautiful terracotta cross int he first session. In session two, you will glaze your clay cross project. 

Sacred Heart Relief Motif/ Holy Water Fount :

The origin of the devotion to the Most Sacred Heart in the modern form, derived for a French Roman Catholic Saint, St. Marguerite Marie Alacoque, whose feast day is October 16th.  She learned the devotion from Jesus during a mystical experience.  Her revelations were numerous.  On December 27, 1673, Margaret Mary reported that Jesus permitted her to rest her head upon His heart, and then disclosed to her the wonders of his love, telling her that he desired to make them known to all mankind and to diffuse the treasures of his goodness, and that he had chosen her for this work.  In session two, you will glaze your clay cross project. 

Don't worry about whether you think you can draw or not; bring a special ( or easy) treat to share and/ or a special drink and desire to make something beuatiful and edifying to God !

If you cannot make the second session , September 2nd, you can come in on Satueday drop in time on the 2nd  or 4th Saturday of the month ( except for September 24) from 11- 1pm.

Price covers cost of instruction for 2 sessions of 2.5 hours, materials, glazing and two firings. Finished work may be displayed indoor or outdoor after final firing.  

Looking forward to our time well spent together!

Many blessings,

Julie Schulte
