Clay Summer Session 3
June 19–July 1
Intimate and Colorful Clay
This handbuilding workshop will explore construction techniques such as pinching, coiling, darting, and hollow slab construction. Students will also learn to make drape molds with objects brought from home to create reinterpreted objects of use. The second part of the workshop will focus on exploring surface embellishing techniques and materials, including colored slips and underglazes. We’ll emphasize marrying form and surface through texture, pattern, and color to create works of intrigue and intimate beauty filled with personal language and meaning. We’ll use cone 5-6 B-Mix clay and fire in oxidation. All levels. Lower clay studio.
