Layered Effects: Surface Techniques in Clay
Instructor: Abby Salsbury
Saturday & Sunday, April 22 & 23
9:30 am - 4:30pm each day
Lab Fee: $35
Students will experiment with a variety of techniques for creating layered surfaces for pottery forms. Color, texture and depth can be achieved using underglaze, slip trailing, sgraffito, mishima, and wax to create low relief on the surface. Students will work on both leather hard and bisque pieces. Leather hard tiles will be provided, and students should also bring bisque ware ready to glaze and decorate. Please bring any brushes or tools that you would typically use to decorate. This class includes one glaze firing to be done Saturday night and unloaded on Sunday. The class will work in earthenware, but the techniques can be adapted to all temperatures.
