Service Description

This newly enhanced class will explore glazes and surface decoration. It is intended for artists who want to up their game in glazing and explore other techniques that can be used as stand-alone decoration or in conjunction with glazes. Students will be encouraged to discover and evaluate their own unique designs and combinations. **Please contact the office to register for this class. Prerequisites: -Basic knowledge of glazes offered at Clay Space, including a working understanding of each glaze’s basic characteristics. -Basic understanding of the use of wax resist, oxides, slip, underglaze, and interactive pigments. -Willingness to explore both in class AND on your own time using materials provided and your own work. Supplies Required: -4 – 6 completed and bisque fired pieces. 2 – 3 must have texture. Please bring bowls, mugs, plates, or platers. -1” foam brush and 1 – 2 other brushes (flat, angled, round). Some will be provided for use in class. It is recommended you own some brushes specifically for wax resist techniques. -Notebook to record your work and techniques learned. -Clay Space will provide 2-3 small bowls/cups per student. Class Structure: The class will span eight weeks. WE WILL MEET AS GROUP EVERY OTHER WEEK for four total classes that are two hours long. This will give participants an opportunity to spend time between classes applying the techniques we are learning. Each class, we will start by discussing one or two topics. We will be working in the glazing area and the hand building area to explore techniques depending on the topic discussed. After a Q&A, the class can begin working on their own with help from the instructor. Exploration is vital to your success in this class. It is critical that each student spends their own time exploring what they have learned using their own bisqueware and pieces provided by Clay Space. Schedule: May 7: Wax Resist with glaze combinations. Different style brushes will be discussed for wax application as well as layering of glaze on the interior of your pieces. May 21: Oxides, mason stains, and interactive pigments with glazes, both under glazes to enhance texture/designs and on top to create patterns. June 4: Underglaze transfers, engobes and slips (plain and colored). June 18: Examine various techniques of applying as well as other forms of “resist”. Final: 60 – 90 minute session will be scheduled for us to reconvene and review our final work (that will now be glaze fired).
