Yoshi Fujii

Seductive Elegance: Clay Carving Techniques 

This 2-day participation workshop will introduce students to surface embellishment through carving the leather-hard surface. Yoshi will demonstrate using the potter’s wheel to create functional objects (simple cup & bowl forms) to serve as a collection point for visual inspiration.  Students will explore the elegant quality of porcelain and seductive beauty possible through hand-carved lines, patterns and motifs and slip trailing to create visual and physical depth for tactile communication.  Previous clay experience is required, open to hand-builders or potters. Students may choose to bring leather-hard pots or tiles and design references, grog-free clay recommended. Course fee includes clay and bisque firing.

WS03 Saturday and Sunday 10:00am – 4:00pm, November 9 & 10

Fee: $200 member, $220 non-member
