In this workshop students will have the opportunity to create an assortment of hand-built stoneware forms using clay slabs. Construction techniques using various mold forms and templates will be taught as well as surface design techniques using clay slips, texture stamps and carving tools.
Throughout the creative process emphasis will be placed on the integration of form and surface.
Art educators and students new to hand-building, or those looking to broaden their hand-building skills will find this workshop informative and inspiring.
