Jack Troy Lecture at Historic Yellow Springs

“Throwing Words; Composing Clay” Lecture with Jack Troy at Historic Yellow Springs Monday April 15, 7 to 8 p.m.   Historic Yellow Springs invites you to a lecture with internationally known potter, teacher and writer Jack Troy, entitled “Throwing Words; Composing Clay.” This is the second in the 2019 Art Lecture series at Historic Yellow Springs. “Throwing Words; Composing Clay” Troy will speak on this theme in a style that engages the audience in its weaving of words and images with his experience and knowledge of pottery. A humble master of both clay and language, his anecdotal stories include valuable technical and aesthetic considerations, humorous depictions of artistic challenges as a potter, and inspiring new ideas. Also included in the presentation, slides of Troy’s pottery reveal sources of inspiration as well as his understanding of ceramic history and its continuity to the present day. Troy adds, “In addition to documenting my work in clay with images, I will also be reading and reciting some of my poems—many of which are pottery related—that are important aspects of my expression.” If you have a passion for clay, art, poetry, or the process of transformation, this is an opportunity not to be missed. The lecture will take place on Monday April 15 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Washington Building in Historic Yellow Springs. Tickets may be purchased in advance as well as at the door the day of the event. Pottery, throwing sticks, and publications by Jack Troy will be for sale at the event. HYS Wood-Fired Kiln Rebuild Campaign All proceeds from sale of lecture tickets will go towards...
