Event Description

Working with stoneware clay and using coil building and other handbuilding techniques, students will construct sculptures combining multiple figures or objects, working with form and surface to create narratives. We will discuss anatomy, proportion, posture, and gesture. Facial features, hands, feet, and clothing will be added to animate the figures. Surfaces can be enhanced by texturing and detailing. We will explore glazes with test tiles. Electric firing. Basic handbuilding will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all levels. Lower clay studio.
