Christy Culp
All Levels | $200
Weekend Workshop
Learn how to add more dimension to your clay pieces through surface decoration in a technique packed weekend. Mishima, sgraffito, stenciling, and glaze trailing techniques will be introduced. Students will have the opportunity to discover the unlimited possibilities of adding imagery, pattern, and lines to wet clay surfaces using underglazes and slip. Glaze trailing and layering on bisque-fired pieces will also be presented. You may bring low to mid-range pieces that have been bisque fired to cone 06. You are asked to bring a sketch book, images, and symbols personal to your work along with a sense of adventure and experimentation.



Christy Culp has been making pottery and teaching art since 1991. She works with red earthenware clay, slips, and majolica glazes to create luscious functional wares and fruit inspired sculptures. Her work is known for its very feminine qualities and imagery of cherries and pears. A graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, her work exhibits at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, The Clay Place, Boulevard Gallery, Penn State New Kensington Art Gallery, and The Saxonburg Area Artist Co-op. Her work is also found in many private collections. She is a member of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh and a founding member of the Saxonburg Area Artists Co-op. When not making work in her studio, 2 Pears Pottery, Christy is teaching ceramics, sculpture, drawing, and painting at Deer Lakes High School.
