Join us on Thursday, February 4th, for a slide lecture by Chapel Hill potter Sasha Bakaric!
Originally from Zagreb, Croatia, Sasha first came to pottery through a class for children that she took with her young daughter. She started taking classes and after several years of being a serious hobby potter,
decided to leave her career in finance and management to become a full-time potter.
Sasha makes functional stoneware as well as wall pieces inspired by microscopic cells and organisms. She says, “My inspiration comes from microscopic images of various cells and microorganisms as basis of all life…the dichotomy between beauty of these images and fears or repulsiveness that people often have when faced with viruses or bacteria, is something that excites me.” Sasha was a recipient of the 2012 Durham Arts Council Emerging Artist Award and is a full-time member of the FRANK gallery in Chapel Hill.
Sasha’s slide lecture will focus on her work, process and inspiration. A potluck at 6 pm will begin the evening’s events, followed by the presentation at 7 pm. Come out for a great night of food and community!
Location: The NCPC Educational Building located behind the NC Pottery Center at 233 East Avenue, Seagrove, 27341.
This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, call the center at 336-873-8430. This ongoing lecture series is facilitated by Josh Floyd, the Artist-in-Residence at the Pottery Center.
