Join me for a weekend of creativity as we delve into the world of abstract pattern. Using various types of paper resist, we’ll explore surface decoration techniques applied to fresh clay forms with slip and underglaze. Students will learn to integrate dynamic surface on their clay work using a vocabulary of personal expression through abstract drawings, patterns, found imagery and more. We will consider color, composition, and form to generate die cut stencils using a KLIC-N-KUT Zing Air Die Cutter. This course is designed to create opportunities for surface research and design development in our studio practices. My goal is to expand your surface decoration repertoire. This course is open to all skill levels. Hand-builders and wheel throwers are welcome.
