Decals In Atmosphere

July 22, 2018 – July 28, 2018

Justin Rothshank

In this workshop students learn how to transfer their own imagery onto ceramic work using a variety of decal, stamping and layering techniques. The course covers image preparation, printing and transferring onto greenware and glazed ware, using commercial decals, and firing temperatures for various types of decals. You will learn how to use and fire decals in all kinds of kilns, and experiment with electric kilns and the soda kiln. There will also be discussion about production and marketing techniques for the studio potter including daily production, social media and small business efficiency. Open to all skill levels.
