Decorated Surface

Surface decoration is a wonderful way to take your work to the next level and express your own ideas. In this class, we will cover a wide variety of surface techniques. We will start with treating the background using carving, stamping, sgraffito and inlay techniques on leather-hard greenware. We will then explore surface design using slips, resist, transfer, and brushwork. We will also experiment on relevant glazing techniques to complete your surface design. This class is ideal for students at all levels who want to focus on developing their surface design skills and exploring their personal creative voice. Studio time outside of class is strongly suggested to build skills as well as finish class projects. Class fee includes one 25 lb. bag of clay and use of specific class supplies.
