Brief description of the history of hypertufa making and the materials and techniques used to create it. Each participant will measure and mix a batch of hypertufa and cast their own hypertufa pot.
Participants will remove pots from mold and add texture and optional color. Participants will also learn how to properly cure their new pot when they take it home, and will receive a take-home sheet with a brief history of the hypertufa making craft and a couple basic recipes and locations where the ingredients can be found.

Ever since childhood I have been fascinated by sculpture, design and the natural world. For the past eight years I have focused my attention on creating handcrafted concrete vessels and functional designs inspired by organic shapes, textures and colors. My original works can be found in restaurants, offices and residences throughout the Sacramento area.
