Instructor: Erica Hood

This class is designed to introduce students to techniques that bring surface design and clay object-making together. Multiple surface design techniques will be explored throughout the course. We will utilize colored slips and underglazes to transfer images and patterns onto ceramic pieces. Demonstrations will include: tissue paper/newsprint transfers, silkscreening, and photo lithography. This new course is perfect for anyone who wants to add color and decoration to their work.

 

** For purposes of proper glazing and firing, all students must use cone 10 clay and glazes available at Chases Garage - no clay purchased from outside sources will be permitted for use in this class. We use #900 toast brown stoneware as well as #510 white stoneware from Laguna and BMIX and have approx. 20 glazes and slips available for use in the studio. Students will learn wheel throwing, hand building, surface design and glazing techniques from local ceramicist, Erica Hood.
