In this workshop students will discover the fundamental concepts and techniques for ceramic surface decoration. We will begin by learning to create patterns ideal for stencil designs from drawings, found imagery and vector shapes. Using a Klic-N-Kut Zing Air Die Cutter we will generate custom paper and tyvek stencil sheets. Next we will experiment with applying pattern to form using the stencil sheets for paper resist, mishima, and sgraffito with underglaze on greenware. We will give special consideration to the 6 principles of design [balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, and unity/variety] and how these visual tools can enhance the overall composition to create impactful imagery on clay work. Focusing on idea development and skill building, we will work small and invest different design solutions with each piece.

I’m excited to announce my first Pottery Northwest workshop. This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to surface decoration techniques and how to embrace vibrant color on clay work. You’ll practice an array of decorating techniques including inlay, slip trailing and stencil resist using a vocabulary of personal expression to create opportunities for surface design development in your studio practice. Using underglaze, we’ll explore ways to expand the commercial palette to create tints, shades and custom colors. Applying personal inspiration and imagery to promote idea development, we will work small and focus primarily on technique. The goal is to expand your surface decoration repertoire.

Ready, Set: Designing Contemporary Tableware

This workshop will improve students’ aesthetic sensibility to design and make ceramic sets. Create your own set of tableware or objects and investigate variations on a theme. A set can be tied together with color, size, position of image, or concept. Every artist approaches a series of forms with a slightly different perspective. The experience of making the first influences the next. We’re thoughtful and inconsistent creatures and we can use these characteristics to great benefit when we do so with intention. This course is open to all skill levels. Hand-builders and wheel throwers are welcome. Previous experience in clay will be
helpful.
