REMEMBERING MIKHAIL ZAKIN

ZakinRecognized along with Karen Karnes as one of the first two women in the US to build and fire a salt kiln (1969) Mikhail Zakin passed away at 92-years of age on September 8, 2012. Zakin is also credited as the founder (1974) and president of the Art School at Old Church (formerly known as the Old Church Cultural Center) in Demarest, New Jersey. The Annual Pottery Show & Sale at the Art School at Old Church earned stature as an important opportunity to discover and collect work by nationally leading potters including Karnes, Jack Troy, Malcolm Davis as well as those by younger generations of clay artists.

Known for her innovative work in salt glazing and carbonized clay sculptural forms, Zakin taught at the Mendocino Art Center, Brooklyn Museum School, Greenwich House Pottery, Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill in MA, and Sarah Lawrence College. She led seminars in China, Japan, Italy, Korea, England, Mexico, Scotland, Morocco and the Netherlands, and her work is in major collections internationally. Her friend Maria Danziger shared, "Mikhail often said the tapestries of life are the connections we weave with the people we meet.  She believed that these shared journeys define our immortality." On Saturday, October 6 at 6 PM the Art School at Old Church will be celebrating Mikhail and her legacy.  All are welcome - the address is 561 Piermont Road, Demarest, NJ 07627.
