    Meet the Artist: Dennis Parks

    Thursday October 6, 2016 / 5 – 7 pm

    Dennis Parks is a ceramist who moved to the rural ghost town of Tuscarora in 1966, where he established the internationally-known Tuscarora Pottery School. Parks pioneered a process using native clays that are single-fired in kilns fueled with recycled crankcase oil. Recognized for his innovative use of text, Parks often imprints written fragments from classical literature, political puns, and poetry onto his works.

    His stoneware has been honored worldwide for its wide range of inventive forms and his work has been exhibited in museums in over twenty countries around the world.  In celebration of the opening of Land, Language and Clay, join Dennis Parks for an intimate and informal evening of dialogue and conversation about his life and work.
