NEW HOLIDAY MUGS AND POTSCOMING SOON!
CLAY ALCHEMY WITH IDANIA SALCIDO.
AVAILABLE ONLY AT THE JEANNE OLIVER LEARNING NETWORK.
I have been intrigued by ceramics forever. It is surprising to me how such humble material as clay, which gets blown by wind and washed away by water, can be transformed into something so permanent, valuable and beautiful just by adding the other 3 elements, along with the human touch.
EARTH: It starts as clay, one of the most common materials in the world.
WATER: Moisture is what makes clay workable and pliable. Without it it’s just dust.
AIR: It helps the piece harden enough to fire it.
FIRE: It’s the element that transforms the clay and turns it into ceramics.
In this class you’ll go back to being a child and get your hands dirty. You’ll play with clay and experience the deeply satisfactory feeling of making shapes out of it. You will learn the different types of clay, hand building techniques and decorative finishes.
I will guide you how to fire the clay and transform it into a functional finished piece of art that you’ll cherish forever. Let’s get the alchemy started.

Idania Salcido, the artist behind Danita Art.
Hi! It’s me, Idania, the artist behind Danita Art.
I’ve been making and selling art since I was 28, so far it's been 15 years since I quit my office job and decided I was going to be an artist.I
Me and my art are in constant motion. changing and learning so many things along the way, and I hope to be able to continue in this path of art discovery.
I’m a feminist, mother of 2 children, struggle with depression and ADHD. I love nature, art, hoarding (and sometimes reading!) books.
Here you won’t find a perfectly curated collection of my art, but an honest chronicle of the imperfection and messiness of my life as an artist.
I love to experiment and work in different formats and release different art constantly, and not even I know what will I come up with next.
So, stay tuned, visit often!
