Volumetric Image Transfer
October 8, 2017 – October 14, 2017
In this class students combine form and surface as they explore techniques that integrate wheel throwing and image transfer simultaneously, creating uniquely decorative functional wares. You will discover how to develop silk-screens, making computer-generated embossments for molds and stamps, and explore the reduction cooling process that the instructor uses to fire his work. Participants will begin on tiles and advance to wheel thrown forms while being encouraged to think creatively. You will leave the workshop with a new approach to surface and decoration. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
