Workshop II

Tattooing Pots

Explore surface decoration and finishing techniques; learn tricks and

recipes for underglaze ‘ink’, wax inlay, and apply slip and stain cleanly.

These are techniques that can be used for illustrated or patterned surfaces

to give clay bodies character pre-glazing. Guidance will also be given on

developing your own imagery, composition, and strategies for applying

2-D designs to 3-D objects. Bring two pieces of bisqueware and one piece

of leatherhard greenware.

slip casting skills, participants will explore the beautiful interrelated forms

and patterns of the organic world. Spalling, construction of pre-cast

approaches to organic forms and their relationships will be explored.

Students will be encouraged to bring small objects for molding, objects
