If you’ve ever glazed your pottery in the Clay on Main studio within the last few years, you know you have considered using Alice’s Matte Green. This beautiful and reliable glaze was developed by our own member, Alice Schneider. Alice came to Clay on Main several years ago with a curiosity about clay that developed into a love that created her very own ceramics studio in her residence. Between that first moment that everyone met Alice until now, we all knew that she was special. Her gentle spirit, quick wit, and innate intelligence made her a delight to have in our midst. Alice was a precise chemist when it came to mixing our glazes, and helped organize our glaze/chemical room and refine our recipes. Her hand-dug clay pieces were always a highlight at every show in which she was represented and displayed the loving care, passion, and precision which she carried with her.
Our dear Alice passed away last month, on September 24th 2016, after a battle with breast cancer. Alice’s friends and family have been kind enough to inform everyone of a Celebration Of Life in Alice’s honor. All who knew Alice are encouraged to attend.
From Alice’s Facebook Page, her friend Neal writes:
“To all the friends of Alice Schneider. This is Neal Nemhauser, a friend of Alice’s for many years, writing on her channel. I think by now most of you know that Alice passed away on September 24, 2016, succumbing to breast cancer. She will be deeply missed. On Sunday, October 23, 2016, at 1 pm, we will gather in Pennsylvania for a celebration of her life. Specific location will be available soon and posted here (see below). All are welcome. If you have favorite stories, anecdotes, memories, photos, etc. that you would like to share, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be time allowed for those who would like to share their stories at the celebration. It would be helpful to know approximately how many people are coming, so if you would also let me know via email if you plan to attend, and how many will be with you. We love you Alice!”
