Ceramic Surface Surprise Party
June 2, 2019 – June 8, 2019
Jason Bige Burnett
In this course we’ll celebrate surface decoration by using simple techniques, and exploring combinations focusing on many that can be achieved while clay is in its greenware stage. Stamping, cut stencils, stickers, monotype slip transfers, underglaze inlay, water etching, incising and sgraffito, underglaze washes and stains, and the use of screen printed underglaze transfers are several of the processes we’ll sprinkle within the week. Idea development and doodling exercises will help students create personal narratives then to translate onto their clay work. We’ll use low-fire red clay and work small, however these process will translate in various firing temps, styles and clay bodies. Let’s party!
COURSE FEE: $600
