Steiner, Daniel Ceramics Workshop
In the Fall of 2006, Rosalie Steiner established The Daniel Steiner Ceramics Workshop and gifted the ceramic equipment, tools, and materials of her late grandson, Daniel Steiner, to The University of Akron, Mary Myers School of Art, Ceramics Area. This gift is to be used to further the mission of the University into area schools and extend Daniel’s love of ceramics into the community through a series of community workshops.
Daniel Steiner began his art career in Atlanta, Ga., using an electric kiln with his brother, Richard. When Daniel returned to Bath Township and The University of Akron, he continued shaping his love for ceramics and pottery. During hikes around his grandmother’s home and the creek beds of the Yellow Creek Watershed, Daniel would find glaze and clay to use in his works of art. Daniel was known for returning these finished pieces of art to the closest residence from where the materials were found, in hopes of spreading his love of art and ceramics into the community.
During the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 academic year, The Mary Myers School of Art held a series of ceramic workshops for groups of up to 10 elementary school children and groups chosen by Rosalie Steiner. The workshops were conducted by Professor Donna Webb and an art education student from The University of Akron. Students wishing to use the gas kiln(s) available on the Steiner Woods property are responsible for the use of the kiln(s) and assume all risks associated with a gas kiln.
