  1. “The Clay Canvas” Sgraffito Workshop with Alissa Mittl Register Here May 24, 2020: 10:00am – 4:30pm * EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION THROUGH 3/24/2020 * $145.00 Early Bird Nonmembers (includes lunch) $115.00 Early Bird Members (includes lunch) $165.00 Nonmembers (includes lunch) $135.00 Members (includes lunch) In this one-day workshop, students will learn how clay can be treated as a two-dimensional canvas using sgraffito carving techniques. The term sgraffito originates from the Italian term graffiare meaning “to scratch.” It is a ceramic carving technique in which the colored, leather-hard surface is scratched through to reveal the clay body underneath. Using underglazes and carving techniques, Alissa will demonstrate how to build visually upon the ceramic surface to create depth and detailed imagery. An interest in drawing is encouraged, but no prior experience is necessary! All materials included. Register Here About the Ranch Reitz Ranch is comprised of 14 acres on the beautiful Verde River in Clarkdale, Az. Nestled between Cottonwood, Jerome, Clarkdale, and Sedona, the ranch offers easy access from any spot here in the heart of Arizona wine country. With a remote feel, the ranch is still within a 20 minute drive of stores, restaurants, and nightspots. Built on the bones of a working ranch, the rich heritage of the ranch is apparent everywhere you look. A bunkhouse built over 100 years ago out of river rock, well pump handles, and literally hundreds of Don’s “porch pots” add to the experience. Whether you’re a beginning potter, advanced hobbyist, or working professional, then ranch can meet your needs. A well-equipped open studio, a wood fired kiln selection, and most importantly, a helpful community of wonderful people with the same interests will make you feel right at home.

    I love all the varied shapes a good mug comes in. The shape is my current favorite. It works well to separate the textured areas from the geometric sgraffito in the bottom. It has a pulled handle and commercial glazes and was fired to cone 6 electric.

    I don't make many teapots, but I had the idea for this teapot with a hollow wave cut out of the body. It was an experiment, and it's not perfect but I still really like this piece. Wheel thrown and hand built with applied engobe and underglaze, sgraffito and hand painted waves. Fired to ^6 electric.

    This is my favorite piece I have made to date. I sold it about a year ago but haven't made another one yet. It's wheel thrown with applied colored engobes. It's hand carved and textured with pulled handles and commercial glazes. Fired to ^6 electric.

    This was a new take on a design I've been doing awhile. It may have spurred a new variation on several of my usual pots. I'm excited to see what comes of it. The pattern at the bottom was created with paper resist and sgraffito. After bisque fired, black underglaze was applied and wiped back, then colorful accents added to the wings. It's finished with commercial ial glazes and fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.

    Wheel thrown and hand carved. The bottom features a leaf design created by using paper leaves as a resist to the underglaze. Sgraffito designs were added along with a pulled handle and spiral embellishments. Fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
  7. From the album: Favorites

    wheel thrown bowl covered in underglaze. I used paper butterfly's to resist the white underglaze and create the butterfly design. I then carved a geometric pattern on the inside and outside of the bowl. It's finished in a commercial clear glaze and fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
