Raleigh, NC, March 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- During the month of March, Marina Bosetti of Bosetti Tile Art will host a workshop in her downtown Raleigh studio to help beginning and intermediate artists experience the joy of working with red clay and glazing. The workshop combines both instructional and hands-on components, during which the participants will complete a bird house that is designed to house North Carolina-area birds.
The concept for the workshop was inspired by the upcoming Bird House Competition, sponsored by the News and Observer and hosted at the JCRaulston auditorium. This is an annual event that is open to anyone aged four and older. Entries are designed according to a theme and are judged on a variety of areas, including craftsmanship, aesthetics, and functionality.
When asked why she chose to focus her workshop on the birdhouses, Ms. Bosetti commented, “I find it deeply rewarding when I create a piece that is both beautiful and useful. I think it’s the joy of knowing that my efforts and creativity will have a treasured home at the end. I hope to inspire the notion of ‘purpose in art’ within the workshop participants.”
Ms. Bosetti is a life-long clay artist who studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Her work has been showcased numerous times in the New York area and she has been a demonstrator at the American Crafts Museum. Today, she is a business-owner and her creative focus is on designing art nouveau-inspired tiles for installation.
