Peeling the Onion…
…without all the tears! This workshop will focus on creating dynamic, layered, and interesting ceramic surfaces for both
functional and sculptural vessels. We will look at building up slip and terra sigalatta surfaces and backgrounds to enhance and enliven the ceramic surface and provide dynamic, layered backgrounds for glazes to interact with. Demonstrations will include slip application from wet clay all the way up to the bone dry state. We will look at brushing slip, hakame, paper resist, brush wipes, sgraffito, champleve, slip trailing, terra sigallatas, and different resist techniques to build up layers of information and interest for glazing to later enhance and augment our ceramic vessels. Glazing considerations will be discussed, but the bulk of the workshop will be spent discussing and exploring leather hard and bone dry applications. Participants should be open to experimentation and exploration of possibilities. The workshop is best suited for individuals who can center and throw at least 2+ pounds of clay and/or comfortably handbuild forms to experiment with.
