Form and Surface:
Tulip Vase Workshop
Center for the Arts is pleased to introduce to the Westchester Community, visiting Ceramics Professor from Colorado State University, Sanam Emami. This workshop will focus on the making of a tulip vase, a decorative showpiece traditionally designed to hold cut flowers and especially tulips. The pottery wheel will serve as the primary tool for construction, with the addition of some hand building processes. Numerous decorative techniques will be introduced, including stamping, carving, slip decoration and silkscreen transfers. Students will explore the use of pattern in the integration of form and surface. Pattern and decoration not only adorn or embellish, but also inspire formal decisions.
Registration is now open for Winter and Spring 2014
Winter: 5 sessions: January 13 - February 17
Spring: 14 sessions: January 25 - May 10
Spring: 10 sessions: February 24 - May 10

Ten Gifts That Give Back
As we celebrate this holiday season, we want to share with you ten gifts that give back. These are in no particular order, but are all particularly fabulous!
1. Make a Purchase from a Project Supporting CERF+
Artists in Crimson Laurel Gallery’s annual cup
auction, Disaster, Relief & Resilience: Cup Show Curated by Martina
Lantin, have designated the proceeds from the sale of one of their
cups to CERF+. Hurry over to the site - cups are going fast!
Jewelry artist Marne Ryan’s Giving By Design series features seven unique designs (available as pendants, earrings, or tie tacks) that each support a nonprofit close to her heart - including CERF+!
10% of sales of George McCauley’s film "Ron Meyers and the Usual Suspects" are being donated to CERF+
2. Give a One-of-a-Kind Ornament from Artful Home
Our friends at Artful Home are once again donating to CERF+ a portion of the proceeds of sales from their beautiful ornament collection.
3. Shop at an A Season for CERF+ Gallery
Participants in A Season for CERF+ are amazing on so many levels: they sell spectacular, one-of-a-kind craft AND they support CERF+ while they do it. Doesn’t that sound like the kind of business you’d like to support this holiday season? Visit our website to find a participant map.
4. Visit the CERF+ Store
From limited edition charms, to Boris Bally trays, to vintage CERF+ logo gear, there are plenty of items to delight right in our online store.
5. Make a Commemorative Gift
Celebrate someone you love with a donation to CERF+ in their honor! We’ll notify them of your generosity with our charming "CERF+ @ Heart" card.
6. Give the Gift of Goods to an Artist in Need
CERF+’s Artists’ Relief Exchange helps connect people who have materials to donate with artists who need them. Visit our craigslist-style site to post your unused tools, supplies, or books, or even services you have to offer. You can make a huge difference for an artist recovering from an emergency.
7. Contribute to CERF+’s Annual Appeal
Your donation to our annual appeal ensures that we can be at the ready for craft artists facing career threatening emergencies, as well as continue to provide the resources that help all artists build resilient careers. Make a contribution today.
8. Buy American-Made Craft
Whether through one of the suggestions in this email or via the studio of an artist in your neighborhood, we encourage you to buy American-made craft this holiday season. Your purchase will keep traditions alive and delight the recipient with a one of a kind gift that you know they won’t find elsewhere!
9. Give the Gift of Preparedness with a Studio Protector
While we can’t predict fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, or floods, we can teach artists how to protect their studios and careers from these and other emergencies. Give the artist in your life a Studio Protector and they’ll have the tool they need to shelter their careers from disasters large and small.
10. Spread the Word
Help us make sure that all artists know about the programs and services that are available to them from CERF+ by sharing our enews, adding a link to CERF+ on your website, or posting about CERF+ on Facebook and Twitter.

Bruce Dehnert, Ceramics
Department Head at Peters Valley School of Craft in Layton, New Jersey announces the publication of
"Simon Leach’s Pottery Handbook"
Dehnert co-authored the volume with Simon Leach. This beautiful new work offers a comprehensive survey of pottery technique, from setting up the studio to glazing and firing. Published this year by Abrams, the volume features detailed photography by Jared Flood and Denhert. It is conveniently bound with a wire spine, adding to its usefulness. A glossary, index, and extensive appendices provide valuable references for the amateur and professional alike. The volume includes two DVDs that present demonstrations of the techniques described in the book.
Praise for Simon Leach’s Pottery Handbook:
"A definitive guide for every step of pottery making." —Publishers Weekly
"Third-generation potter Leach, with technical and photographic assistance from Bruce Dehnert and Jared Flood, capitalizes on his celebrity with an amazingly detailed, step-by-step text for all major processes in ceramics. The in-depth perspective starts with his directions for making simple tools (a wire tool and a sponge stick) and is bolstered by charts and information-packed sidebars (e.g., for removing air bubbles and troubleshooting your first pull). Every topic that novices must master is covered, such as working basic shapes (cylinder and variations dishes) trimming, decorating and glazing, and firing." —Booklist
"This book has some of the most gorgeous photography I’ve seen…" —Susan B. Anderson blog
"Among how-to books, this volume stands out. This gem is as carefully honed as the skills it seeks to share." —American Craft
