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. Class size will remain at reduced capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory. Proof of vaccination required prior to 1st class.
