Relaxing Pottery in the Park: Ocarinas and Kurinuki

Relaxing Pottery in the Park: Ocarinas and Kurinuki

Sunday 04 February
Ala Moana Blvd. - 10am - 3 Hours
Honolulu Art Group
Hello everyone! In this session of Pottery in the Park, we will cover two techniques: making ocarinas (ceramic flutes) and kurinuki (carved cups)

Kurinuki is a Japanese technique that dates back to medieval times when it was used to make objects for tea ceremonies. During the Edo Period, from 1600, it was extended into the production of everyday objects.

Ocarinas date back 12,000 years and were originally founded in Chinese and Mesoamerican cultures. They were popularly used for song and dance.

Come by and learn how to make your own ocarina, (or dog whistle) as well as your own Japanese kurinuki cup.

This workshop will begin with a guided meditation, allowing us to leave our worries to the side and take time for ourselves to sink into art-making.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and is facilitated by an experienced working potter.

Please note: firing is not included in the session cost, so finished pieces will not be waterproof or food-safe.

    Nigel is a great instructor. He's knowledgeable and highly qualified to help out aspiring photographers start their photography journey. He takes time to answer questions. I recommend this workshops to anyone interested in learning and improve their photography skills.
    Portrait photography was new to me and wasn't something I was completely comfortable doing but Nigel made us all feel comfortable. Nigel was very knowledgeable and taught effectively. He gave each participant the opportunity to practice the skills he was teaching, which I appreciated.
    I found Mr. Nigel Wallace to be an excellent instructor who exceeded my expectations. He is a subject matter expert with vast experience and excellent people skills. In addition to conveying the technical side of photography, he keeps the application simple. Demonstrating examples and coaching class members through mini-projects while providing feedback and guidance. I would consider this a 'Master Class' and look forward to future learning sessions with Nigel.

    Nigel was awesome!
    Class met expectations well. I like how the instructor thinks about building us up as people, helping us build confidence.
    Nigel takes his time explaining all the photographic process. Answered all assistants questions. He wants to be sure everything his teaches is understood. Great teacher.

    I sit in awe each day looking out over the water in my backyard and watch the mountains, clouds and sky change patterns and colors. This particular evening the sunset was just too beautiful not to take a picture of and share with my friends, family, and photography enthusiasts.

    Photo taken on May 20th 2023 around midnight. I was out driving around that night, trying to find places to shoot some good pictures. I actually gave up and decided to swing by one of my favorite beaches. I bring my dog here several times a week because it's usually not very crowded. It had been raining for days prior, so this parking lot was flooded. It was completely dark outside. And I was curious if I could capture the surroundings in the darkness. I was pleasantly surprised of the i

    Title or Location: Paradise Cove, West Oahu, Hawaii, USA
    I have always wanted to take sunset photos at Paradise Cove in West Oahu, so that day, I did just that. To my delight, there were three monk seals at the beach while music from the luau was playing. After that distraction, I made my composition and took a long exposure photo instead of a regular sunset photo.

    Taken with Nikon D7500 with 300mm Nikkor lens. Two male Kingfishers possibly adult male and offspring sitting low by the River Crane. Light was low so had to use a high ISO. Because of this the image had to be denoised . It was then cropped and clarity and texture added in Lightroom. I have a nice triptych of them sitting in three different poses.
