We will begin by rolling out slabs of clay that will serve as a “canvas” for our imagery.  Students will learn how to compose and transfer imagery onto the clay and then methodically carve to create the illusion of depth and layering.  We will also cover slip-trailing, slip inlay or sgrafitto. We will mostly be creating tiles that can be hung on the wall or simply be used for practice, but all techniques will carry over into 3D functional and sculptural work.  Glazing and stain techniques that highlight relief texture will be taught in the last class. Participants will have the option to fire in cone 6 oxidation or cone 10 reduction.  Please bring reference photos of imagery you would like to carve.  We will also have a potluck kiln-opening party at the end of the session  - friends and family welcome!
