The focus of this workshop will be texturing and altering thrown forms. Altering techniques will include faceting, addition of liquid slips and stretching our soft clay forms. Tableware will be the primary focus of forms, but you are encouraged to apply these techniques to your hand-built and sculptural work as well. We will explore glaze application techniques and fire some finished work. Demonstrations will accompany plenty of personal studio time. Participants are encouraged to bring your own throwing and trimming tools. Additional things to bring include
3-5 small to medium bisque fired pieces to use for cone 5 glaze firing, and 3-5 digital images of your finished work to share with the group. Workshop fee includes 50# of stoneware clay.
