East Creek is a 20 acre forest art studio and retreat center located in Oregon's coastal mountains about 60 miles SW of Portland.


Peter Callas’ 50 years in ceramics earned him a worldwide reputation for both his pioneering work with the Anagama kiln and his unique, poetic, and expressionist style.  At this two-day hands-on workshop Peter will teach the art of “One of Kind Forms” using on and off wheel construction. His hand building approach emphasizes how to deal with clay’s expressionistic challenges of constructing sculptural objects as well as Peter’s artful and inspirational techniques abstracting wheel thrown vessels.  Peter’s PowerPoint presentation will discuss his aesthetics, inspirations in life and his 50 years firing an Anagama kiln.

A film premier of his 2022 documentary “CALLAS: LIFE ON FIRE.”  Callas will also discuss his 23-year collaboration with Peter Voulkos and show the 1993 film on “Voulkos the Lost Tapes” 

An intimate presentation and rewarding experience for participants at all levels, his spirited approach will help students handle clay in new and exciting ways.  

“Peter Callas an Enduring Legacy” will be available for purchase.
