Ceramicist gives new way to clay
It’s a process of studying, not manufacturing.”
Just three months ago, Itzhak and her family relocated from Israel to Cupertino, expanding her husband’s jewelry businesses and choosing a new nation for adventure. Before moving, Itzhak operated a pottery studio and flower nursery. Here, she’s focused on her core passion of pottery.
Itzhak teaches classes with just a handful of students, which she explained enables her to focus on individuals. She offers a range of classes for ages 4 and up, as well as joint classes for parents and their children to create together. She also plans to offer weekend workshops and private events.
“Children like the material,” she said, adding that clay offers a pure alternative to Play-Doh and the like. “What could be more natural than clays?”
Children have an opportunity to dig in solo during hourlong sessions with hand-building pottery and sculpturing. Teenagers learn similar techniques, in addition to wheel throwing. And younger potters needn’t wait their turn: Children ages 5 and older can secure private lessons for wheel throwing. In each class, students leave their training with a practical product.
“It’s important to me that the work of the child can be something he’s proud of and can be useful,” Itzhak said.
The same goes for adults. During two-hour sessions, students practice hand building, sculpturing and wheel throwing.
“You don’t need talent – you learn technique,” Itzhak said. “You need to learn to love the touch of clay.”
Wheel throwing is her expertise, a skill shaped over the years. She began molding clay as a toddler. A few years later, when she first met a potter, she knew ceramics would be part of her life.

Mahit Vaddadi spent the end of his summer vacation trying to determine what various cliffs in and around Tver, Russia are made out of.
The 16-year-old Mechanicsburg resident and Cumberland Valley High School student was part of the American team that traveled to Russia to compete in the International Geography Olympiad last week.
The competition pits 160 people from 41 countries against one another in various tests and fieldwork. Two members of the U.S. team, James Mullen and Kevin Li, placed third and sixth, respectively in the international competition.
Vaddadi qualified for the competition after placing in the national competition in the Washington, D.C. area. Vaddadi said he heard about the competition from a friend, though he's always liked geography.
The Olympiad consists of both general knowledge tests and fieldwork tests in the local area of competition, about 300 miles n... (PennLive.com)Dec 30, 2015
Livermore: Youth, seniors to team up to solve problems
Bush. "The inventions were very practical for people with limited mobility."
Bush and her husband were teachers in Cupertino during their younger years, and she misses the connection to younger people and being able to teach and influence them in a positive way, she said.
"On an emotional note, I was impressed that they were interested in doing this with older people. It wasn't just material success for them. All that generation-gap nonsense went away," said Bush.
"They presented themselves with formal garb and good public speaking. They brought all their social graces with them," she said.
Johnston and Goodyear are optimistic that the program with residents will continue in the future and that students will continue to gain valuable lessons and opportunities when they participate.
"All these connections were made for these kids, and all the opportunities that came from this; we don't know exactly where the projects will go, but it's exciting," said Johnston.
