About the Artist

Gail Hustedde (Bainbridge Island) received a 2003 GAP to attend a two-week intensive ceramic workshop with Sam Chung, a nationally recognized studio potter and professor, at the Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine. The workshop will employ both slab construction and wheel-thrown techniques to focus on the creation of teapots, ewers, and pitchers. Completed work will be fired in a salt kiln. “Function has become central to my vessel-making and this workshop’s focus on pouring pots with the integration of wheel-thrown elements and pattern-making in slab construction will provide a faster building of basic forms on which to develop a series. The salt firing component of this workshop will expand my current knowledge and open up new possibilities for glazing and firing my work.”

Gail also received a 1998 GAP.
