On January 30th, 2010 the LCHA is pleased to host another session of our very popular program - Making Faces with Mike Ball.

This program offers everyone from novice to professional an opportunity to put their own hand-sculpted face on various forms made by Ball. Ball will be available to assist you with the application of crafting your own work of art. Upon completion, Ball will glaze the pieces in a traditional Catawba Valley alkaline glaze and fire them in his wood-fired groundhog kiln. This time we are also excited about the TIME CAPSULE that Mike is making for this class. He is turning a cylindrical time capsule that the class will personalize with slip decorations, in addition to filling it with a personal item or two from each participant. Please bring to the class one or two small items about you and/or your family that we can seal in the time capsule.

Please direct questions to: Jason L. Harpe, Executive Director, (704) 748-9090, lcmh@bellsouth.net.
