Workshop with Claudio Reginato

On March 25-26, 2006 I had the pleasure of attending a workshop at Blossom Hill Crafts in Los Alto, CA. Claudio Reginato, a third generation master Itallian potter was the instructor. This is the third year I have attended one of his workshops and I learn more each time.

I took some pictures this time.

Each time he inspires me to do better. The photo below shows a few of the pots I created at the workshop. (The wine glass is there to show comparative size.) I am particularly proud of the tall vase and the picher. Without Claudio's inspiration I doubt that I would have even attempted them.

I just discovered this U-Tube video of Claudio throwing one of his large bowls in 2008. Watch a master!
