Bell and History Day - April 11th
We are excited to present a special exhibit and demonstration about bells on Bell & History Day, April 11, 10am - 4pm. In addition to tours and learning about the Brunners (the early German settlers who built Schifferstadt), ceramic bells by local, award-winning artist, Cameron Petke, will be on display. The finishing techniques used mimic the qualities of baked earth and stone quarry walls. Schifferstadt becomes a harmonizing backdrop to the raw and unglazed ceramic surfaces of these magnificent historical symbols. The artist will be demonstrating throughout the day on his wheel. Come explore the significance of bells in our history and the way this artist is creating them today.
