CLAY SUMMER SESSION 5
JULY 16–28, 2023
Stories Around the Table
We’ll bring functional and decorative tableware to life by drawing, painting, and carving on leather-hard porcelain. We’ll make a variety of small to medium-sized hand- and wheel-formed vessels and decorate them using underglazes, glazes, trailing, sgraffito, inlay, and painting techniques. Bring your favorite narrative source materials including drawings, photographs, illustrations, and ephemera to create a personal library of imagery. Students will be guided in the process of distilling these ideas into dynamic, colorful surface designs, giving individual stories universal appeal. We’ll have demonstrations, drawing exercises, slide talks, conversations about food, optional student presentations, and time in the kitchen. All levels. Upper clay studio.
