Workshop Description

Students will learn new approaches to, and inspiration for, creating and decorating unique functional pots. You will begin the week with multi-part slab forms that utilize templates (such as plates, flasks, teapots, and tiered stands) and optional wheel work to create cups and mugs.  Demonstrations include how to decorate earthenware pots to create engaging and depth-filled low fire surfaces. Participants will also explore using a digital cutter and discover how layers of slips, stencils, sgraffito, latex resist, and underglaze can generate movement in their surfaces at the leather hard stage that will carry all the way through the glaze firing. Open to all skill levels.
