Asheville Art Demo – Ceramic Artists Jean & Carl Saake
Art Demo – Ceramic Artists Jean & Carl Saake
Sat May 3, 2014, 11 – 2PM
Pablo Picasso is quoted as saying “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Well, master ceramic artists Jean and Carl Saake, who are both in their late 80’s prove that with a life of artistic dedication, joy and more than a little effort, you can “grow up” and remain a wonderful artist!
To create their whimsical artwork, Jean first hand molds and sculpts every one of their ceramic fruit pieces or critters and birds. Then Carl hand paints each one and glazes them for firing.
