Studio Touya is a handmade pottery studio located in Seagrove NC where Hitomi and Takuro Shibata set up studio and built Japanese style wood kiln. Our focus is to make simple& functional pottery by using local wild clay and wood firing technique. We named our pottery as "Touya" when we started our small pottery studio in Shigaraki, Japan, and it literary means "pottery house" in Japanese which we really like.

John Jessiman with CubCreek residents and visiting artists

Opening Reception: February 26th, 6-8 pm

Lillstreet Art Center is proud to present the Cub Creek Foundation: John Jessiman With Visiting & Resident Artists, curated by Cub Creek founder and director John Jessiman. The Cub Creek Foundation is a non-profit ceramic educational facility located on a 100-acre property in Appomattox, VA. After years of teaching summer programs at Archie Bray and Alfred University, John Jessiman bought the land with the intention of creating “a residency program where emerging ceramic artists could prepare for advanced study and/or develop their careers.” In 2002, Cub Creek accepted its inaugural class of residents.

In the years since, Cub Creek has been host to more than 50 residents and numerous workshops. This exhibition features the work of 16 artists who have passed through its doors: Jessiman, Bede Clarke, Chuck Hindes, Chris Gustin, Dan Murphy, Jack Troy, Josh Deweese, Randall Edmonson, Ron Meyers, David MacDonald, Mitch Iburg, Andrew Avakian, Daniel Molyneux, Ed Feldman, Shanna Fliegel and Takuro Shibata.

Visiting Artist Workshop with John Jessiman: April 2nd and 3rd
