Northfield artist producing custom tableware

Published 7:03 am Saturday, February 16, 2019

Northfield artist Tom Willis is mixing things up a bit in his pottery studio with a new venture in producing tableware through slip casting.

Slip casting, in its most basic form, is “pourable clay” that is added to plaster molds that solidifies to produce beautiful stoneware.

Willis’ pottery exhibit will be held at the Northfield Arts Guild Feb. 15 through March 16, with an artist reception from 7-9 p.m. on Feb. 22, with a 7:30 p.m. artist talk.
