She came by the studio today to talk about her most recent project. She is working with the Marquette Neighborhood Association to create a “gateway sculpture tree.” The “Gate Way Sculpture tree,” is going to be a large metal public art piece, to be located between Machinery Row and Gateway Mall.   Erika is currently looking for experienced welders to volunteer some of their time helping to finalize the public piece.

On Friday November 2, our host Jonathan Zarov speaks with Jennifer Lapham, owner and founder of the Midwest Clay Project. Their adult Fall classes will begin this November 5. Jennifer explains the project, “We are a community that offers opportunities to work in clay, and classes for people of all ages and levels of experiences. One of the things that I really like about Midwest Clay Project is this incredible inter-generational community that has really built itself.” She explains that Madison is a strong community when it comes to offering classes in clay, among them including the UW-Madison, MSCR, MATC, Higher Fire, and Fine Earth. The Midwest Clay Project offers classes that teach both basic and advanced level potter’s wheel, hand-building opportunities, and animal/human figure classes. It is a community-based activity, since the nature of the material itself requires a potter’s wheel, Jennifer says. “One of the special things about Midwest Clay Project is that we’re really able to serve that east-side community. A lot of the folks in our studio come right from that east side neighborhood.”   For information about classes and the Midwest Clay Project visit midwestclayproject.com 918 Williamson Street, Madison WI 53703 (608) 255-9240   Listen to the clip here: more »
