This hands on workshop provides an introduction to surface decoration techniques and how to integrate dynamic surface on student’s clay work. Students will develop a vocabulary of personal expression through drawings, patterns, found imagery and more. Die Cut stencils will be designed and generated using a KLIC-N-KUT Zing Air Die Cutter based on student individual aesthetics. We will explore applying personal imagery and iconography through several surface techniques using slip, underglaze, newsprint paper, bamboo paper and tyvek paper cutting to wet clay. This course is designed to create opportunities for surface design development in our studio practices. We will work small and focus primarily on technique. My goal is to expand your surface decoration repertoire. We will focus on how to create and push ideas, push materials and techniques, and how to push your work further. This course is open to all skill levels. Hand-builders and wheel throwers are welcome. Previous experience in clay will be helpful.
