Clay Summer Session 7
August 22-28, 2021
Dimensional Expression on Ceramic Surfaces
Students in this workshop will explore handbuilding, sgraffito, texture, and watercolor-style underglaze to create images of nature and memory on functional and sculptural porcelain vessels and tiles. First we’ll create a clay canvas through an additive process on handbuilt or wheelthrown porcelain forms. Then we’ll use commercial watercolor-style underglazes to create perspective and depth and imitate traditional China paint effects on greenware and bisque-fired surfaces. Projects will be tailored to your interests with special emphasis on landscapes and perspective. Basic wheelthrowing skills are a plus, but this workshop is open to all levels. Upper clay studio.
