Jonathan Kaplan @ Laramie County Community College

My dear friend Jonathan Kaplan had a show at Laramie County Community College last month.  If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know that Jonathan is the owner of Plinth Gallery in Denver, Colorado.  (It is also one of the galleries that I have my work.)  Jonathan’s solo show named Ceramic Forms was up for the month of November, and it was a fantastic show.  Jonathan explored three forms for his show, the double walled basin, the teapot and the tray, and many of his pieces were standing on his trademark plinth.  I am proud that world class ceramics graces our town upon occasion.  Jonathan also gave the students of LCCC a workshop.  I really enjoyed his workshop, it was funny and extremely informative.

I’ve taken many workshops at Plinth Gallery and also taught one, and Jonathan is clearly in charge there but after introductions he becomes a part of the audience. But the biggest reason I loved Jonathan’s workshop was got to see him front and center teaching and explaining his work.  It was great to see Jonathan as workshop guru!
