We are proud to announce the next event in Marafiki’s American Artists Series – a show featuring the work of potter Larry Quirk.
After thirty one years as a practicing trial attorney, Larry Quirk decided to shift gears and start a second career as a potter. Quickly an avocation became an addiction and he is now fully dedicated to learning as much as possible about the art of making clay do what he wants it to do at the wheel and the slab roller.
Don’t miss the chance to meet this interesting and unusual individual who loves to talk passionately of his work. In Larry’s words: “My recent focus has been on making tea pots because the form is both confirning (it must have a spout, a handle and a lid) and liberating in the variety of shapes, textures and themes that can be developed. Happily, working with clay is a never ending creative learning process.”
Please join us here at 20 New Street, Metuchen on Saturday, June 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. to meet Larry and view a selection of his beautiful creations, which will be available for sale. Complimentary wine will be served.
