Gian Pierotti sets out on the James River in a ceramic boat!!





Gian Pierotti, current student in the graduate crafts dept. at VCU, will take this newly created ceramic watercraft, Boatlandia, down the James River on Saturday. You have to hear this in his own words...
"As some of you know I have built a terra cotta boat to float down the James river with me inside. My future is unknown. The vessel and her sea worthiness is unknown. My destination is unknown. Please come and witness Boatlandia and her maiden voyage."
Gian's expedition occurs this Saturday morning (the 17th) at 10:00 am. He will launch his boat at the Osborn boat ramp which is about a 5 minute drive from Richmond.
Also please stop by ADA GALLERY to see his show AMBLING which will remain up through April 23rd. We're open 7 days a week right now, so c'mon down. See some of his work at our site.... and go to his site gianpierotti.com
