Dimensional Expression On Ceramic Surfaces

August 11, 2019 – August 17, 2019

Heesoo Lee

In this workshop students explore hand building, sgraffito, texture and watercolor-style underglaze to create personalized expressions of nature and memory on functional and sculptural porcelain vessels. Participants will encounter two distinctive areas of ceramics. First, you will learn about the creation of a clay canvas through an additive process on hand-built and wheel-thrown bases using fresh porcelain clay. Second, students will use a commercial watercolor-style underglaze to create perspective and depth on bisque-fired surfaces and imitate traditional China paint effects. Projects are tailored to your interests with a special emphasis on landscapes and perspective. Basic handbuilding and/or wheelthrowing skills are necessary.
