My Miniature World of Ceramics
January 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
The Ventura County Potters’ Guild welcomes Troy Schmidt, ceramic artist and miniaturist. Troy will present a glimpse into the whimsical and creative genre of scale miniatures with “My Miniature World of Ceramics”. He will guide you through some of the methods he uses to create his work and share some of his secrets.
Troy’s miniatures are examples of exceptional quality wheel-thrown porcelain in 1-inch scale; each piece being individually thrown on a full-size potter’s wheel. His goal is to create true to scale miniature pottery that is aesthetically pleasing as well as “functional” — walls of even thickness, trimmed foot rings, open spouts, removable lids — the same qualities he looks for in full sized pots. Troy is self-taught in the art of miniature pottery, having learned through practice and experimentation over the past two decades. Troy creates highly meticulous replicas of historic ceramics as well as modern art for discerning collectors. His miniature pottery can be found around the world and has been featured in many magazines in the U.S. and Europe including Miniature Collector, Dollhouse Miniatures, Nutshell News, Dolls House World, Artisans In Miniature (AIM) Magazine, and Miniaturas.
