Presented by Ohio Designer Craftsmen at the Wayne Center for the Arts in Wooster, “Functional Ceramics 2019” will showcase work by 20 artists from across the country and from Canada March 16 through April 13.

West Virginia artist Jen Allen creates porcelain tableware. Her work is made to honor and enhance the rhythms of home life. “My focus is to express sentiments of beauty and joy,” Allen said. “I am determined to keep ‘handmade’ an essential part of the contemporary home and to enhance the home, engage the hand and enliven the spirit.”

Among the artists joining her are Carole Epp, Sasketchewan, Canada; Tony Clennell, Ontario, Canada; Shawn Ireland, North Carolina; and Brandon Knott, Ohio. Knott, a high school art teacher, has been attending the Functional Ceramics workshop since he was in high school.

This year’s workshop will be held April 12-13, and Allen, Clennell and Kenyon Hansen of Michigan will present their individual making and decorating techniques. Registration is $190 and students $90. It includes two box lunches and dinner at Quailcrest Farm. A free reception will be held April 11. Space is limited.
