Creating Forms in Earthenware

Summer 2019 / Ceramic Arts

This adventure starts out by exploring basic pinch, coil and pinch-strip constructions then moves onto building with slabs. We'll learn how to form CUTEsies, add pinch-strips to hand built or thrown bowls and use templates to construct darted cups, boxes and foam- pressed trays. By creating our own carved rollettes or rubber stamps for patterning and texturing the clay surface, it's a breeze to build pieces which are truly our own. Colorful surface enhancements using engobes, terra sigillata, under glazes and specialty low fire glazes are also an integral part of this experience.
