in Houston! Every year this conference is a chance to meet new and old friends and to make connections with future faculty. We are excited to announce that Richard Notkin will be teaching at La Meridiana in 2014. He has studied in depth the foremost Italian Relief makers of the past, the Della Robbia family and will build upon these influences to draw inspiration for comment and contents of the works students will make. See below the piece he has at the Museum of fine arts in Houston. Jason Walker, sculptor with affinity to Richard Notkin will be co teaching in this insightful workshop.
