Professor Yoko Sekino-Bové will present a slide lecture about her glaze practice at 2022 Cowan Symposium, at Cowan Pottery Museum in Rocky River, Ohio on April 9.
The yearly symposium is presented to celebrate the legacy of the Cowan Pottery Studio, founded by R. Guy Cowan in 1912. Following a closure during World War I, the studio reopened and developed a full commercial line of pottery with artistic quality of the highest standard. During its relatively brief existence, the Cowan Pottery Studio, R. Guy Cowan and the artists involved with the studio produced outstanding and technically extraordinary pieces which brought international recognition to American Art Pottery. The expertise of the artists and chemists allowed them to create art forms and glazes which have never been reproduced.
