Event description

Description

Graham will be bringing his wheel ready to create custom pieces and give demonstrations. Custom pots can be purchased and created on the spot. You can pick them up, fired and glazed on Graham’s next visit to Lurvey in April.

Graham Nelson combines his lifelong interest of plants and pottery by creating unique functional ceramic wheel thrown pots tailored to fit the needs of the plants they are intended to contain. A strong believer that form follows function, he strives to find a balance between function and aesthetics.

Graham holds a BFA degree in Art and Design with an emphasis on ceramics and a minor in Art History from Southern Illinois University. He currently teaches pottery classes at the Edward Schock Centre of Elgin four nights a week and is a full time grower at Ron Clesen’s Ornamental Plants in Maple Park.
