Planning is advised but improvisation is a must when new and captivating work is generated in clay. In this workshop you are encouraged to foster the exploration of surface decoration and its relationship to form. Though the focus will be on vessel forms they will be developed to convey sculptural ideas.
“Wow that was deep!”
Here is the real “dirt” on what you can look forward to:
Using dark stoneware, forms will be made by a utilizing a variety of pinch, slab, traditional and nontraditional methods. I will share my methods to make and use custom patterns, the use of unusual objects as molds, and free form slab techniques. Surface decoration will be addressed in a variety of additive and subtractive methods using slips and texture tools.
Attendees can look forward to walking away from this workshop with new skills for building and decorating forms, a stronger ability to explore ideas, and the knowledge to create their own tools and bisque molds.
All levels though some handbuilding experience will be helpful
