Portland ceramic artist Chris Baskin will hold a slide lecture and workshop May 16 and 17 at the LBCC Benton Center, 757 NW Polk Ave., Corvallis.

Originally from New Jersey, Baskin has a long and varied background in the pottery world, and has taught at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, and at colleges and universities in Arizona and Louisville, Kentucky.

His pottery provides an apt vessel to express his belief that beauty resides in the ordinary, the everyday, and the human. Baskin feels that making ceramics enables him to reach across categories and boundaries and to celebrate a common sense of humanity.

Baskin will share his work at an evening slide lecture, which is free and open to the public, Friday, May 16 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the LBCC Benton Center ceramics studio.

Saturday, May 17 Baskin will demonstrate his pottery techniques in a workshop from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the centers’ studio. Cost is $40.

For more information or to register for the workshop, contact the LBCC Benton Center at 541-757-8944.
