The MSCR Adult Arts & Enrichment program hosted visiting artist Nick DeVries at the MSCR-Hoyt Pottery Studio on Oct. 24 and 25.
DeVries’ studio is in the northeast Minneapolis art district. Primarily working on the wheel, Nick DeVries makes forms based on function and use, like tea pots, mugs and bowls. His work has large areas of subtle texture balanced with small additions, stamps and details — often throwing heavier forms and altering them through carving and shaving. The first workshop included a conversation his work and approach to clay work followed with an interactive throwing demo. Sunday’s workshop focused on trimming, finishing and glazing.
