Slab, coil, and pinch a geometric, table-top sculpture in a class inspired by the works of Elsa Rady. Ceramics will be fired after the last session, and participants can retrieve their objects at the Crocker on a designated date. Supplies are included but participants must provide their own lunch and refreshments. Registration closes March 25.

Instructor Mark Abiligard earned a bachelor's in art from San Francisco State University in 1979 and an MFA from the University of Hawaii in 1984.

He is the recipient of numerous grants from the California Arts Council and taught classes in kiln casting glass at the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, The Pilchuck Glass School in Washington, Red Deer College in Alberta, Canada, and in many other public and private studios. His sculptures are collected by private collectors and many major museums, including the Crocker.
