Visit the studio and kilns of Susan Kotulak, a Clermont artist who creates artworks with Japanese inspiration, in both textiles and clay. Open Studio is on Saturday/Sunday August 31st & September 1st. 11AM-5PM as part of the Art Studio Views Tour,
Kotulak’s extensive collection of Japanese kimono is being reborn as women and men’s weable art, with a special focus on creating one of a kind rain slickers out of painstakingly deconstructed and laminated kimono silk. She is also showing the wood-fired pottery and Japanese tea-wares that come out of her giant “anagama” kiln, a medieval style kiln that permits direct flame contact and considerable ash deposits to wash over the pottery leaving tracings of color as the firing progresses towards volcanic temperatures.
There is also an opportunity to visit the kilns in a self-guided educational tour, while nibbling little Japanese snacks.
Visit the studio at 773 Woods Road, Clermont NY 12526. 11:00AM-5:00PM
The studio websites are: TheOkiDokiAnagama.com and SuMoNo.Design
