Yoko Sekino-Bove’s Workshop!

 

Yoko’s Sekino-Bove’s workshop at Plinth Gallery was amazing.  Her generosity was incredible.  It was great learning all her “Japanese, Korean and Chinese Pottery” secrets.  She told all!  Yoko has a grand sense of humor and we were laughing the entire workshop.  I know we all loved it!  If you ever have a chance to take a workshop from Yoko, do it!!!  I really loved her work before and then during the workshop, I really fell in LOVE.  She can paint and draw like nobody’s business!  Wow! Thank you Yoko for everything!!

Plinth Gallery really treated us right for the workshop, they catered a lunch for us from Fuel Café again and it was delicious.

The only thing now, I wish I hadn’t gone to Yoko’s workshop because…..my show and workshop is next.  Yoko really set the bar high; I don’t know if I can live up to what she did.  Now, I’m really nervous.

Well, here is Yoko’s workshop…..

After the workshop we made origami cranes  for OshKosh B’Gosh, they are donating to the children of Japan, an article of clothing for every crane that they collect.

    I delivered our 58 cranes to the Park Meadows store where they have a collection site. There are several local schools in the area also folding them, but the people in the store told me our donation was the most yet! And Bob from Fuel Cafe has generously donated the cost of the workshop lunch to the Mashiko Potters Fund! Thanks Connie and we will see you in May!! Dorothy

    I had the fantastic experiance of handling Yoko’s work last fall while setting up the Visions In Clay Exhibition. I loved the surfaces that she presented, but couldn’t for the life of me figure out how she created them. Now I’ve got a few more clues to work with. Thanks.
    Have fun with your workshop… wish I was sitt’n out there snapping pics and asking questions.

    Hi Zygote
    I love Yoko’s work. When I saw her work in photographs I thought she was using decals. She said lots of people ask her that. But she draws all her images, then goes back and craves into and around the image. It was just amazing to see her work.
