Downing Memorial Fund
North House Folk School, together with the North Shore
community, mourns the loss of friend and instructor Kristi K.
Downing, who passed away December 5, 2013, after a quick recurrence
of cancer. Kristi taught Raku Pottery at North House for more than a
decade, inspiring students to embrace the element of surprise in the
spirit of raku. At the request of the Downing Family, North House is
honored to receive gifts as part of the Kristi K. Downing Memorial
Fund, so that that future generations of artisans may be influenced
and inspired by Kristi's legacy.
