Coffee @ Ten is our free monthly lecture series. Enjoy complimentary baked goods and coffee generously sponsored by Higher Grounds Trading Co.
Our June 2019 speaker is Scott Leipski, ceramic artist and 1st place award winner in the Bodies of...Juried Exhibition of Ceramic Arts. Scott works with press-molds, slab and coil-built forms. More recently he has begun to incorporate mixed media and non-glaze surfaces such as flocking.
After nearly 30 years in retail management, Scott left his job and life in the city to pursue art full time in Gladstone, nestled in the scenic upper peninsula. In the years since, Scott's "compulsion to create, the joy of his work and the discipline learned from years of retail management, has kept him driven and focused - not only to produce but to innovate."
A storyteller at heart, you will enjoy listening to Scott as he talks about his inspiration and his process including a brief demonstration of flocking.
