In this workshop students focus on conceptual solutions for their work in ceramics by rendering their ideas from concept to reality. Participants interested in activating the surface of their pots will explore carving in porcelain and other low relief decoration techniques such as sgraffito and inlay. You may also use celadons and other translucent surface treatments. Students will have the opportunity to explore both high fire and cone 6 celadons. You should come prepared with ideas and concepts that you want to tackle. Open to all skill levels, however some experience in throwing is ideal.
COURSE FEE: $600
