Create a Story with Clay and Color

Two aspects of creating a ceramic sculpture will be covered: building and decorating. You will learn how to design and build an abstract figurative form using the coil building technique and how to transform the surface into the canvas for narrative underglaze painting. We cover all the pros and cons of the process. I’ll demonstrate how to use carving techniques to add nature-inspired elements to the surface; how to use underglazes to paint realistically rendered imagery to create a narrative.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $85-110. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop. Additional firing fees may apply. Additional clay is available for purchase.
