Layered Stories: Porcelain, Pattern & China Paint

Layered Stories: Porcelain, Pattern & China Paint

In this workshop, participants will learn about Katriona Drijber’s approach to throwing and decorating with porcelain. The workshop will cover all stages of creating multi-layered, multi-faceted functional ceramic work.

This includes one day covering the particularities of throwing with porcelain and throwing complex and voluminous forms, including teapots, treasure jars, and animal jars; one day of trimming porcelain and developing/conceptualizing pattern for different forms; one day covering different techniques for surface decoration at the greenware stage (carving, slip trailing, underglaze washes and Mishima); one day of china painting the glazed ceramic surface; and on the final day a discussion of work made in the workshop.

In addition to the techniques described above, we will also make time for talking about content within the work – the ‘why’ of what imagery and pattern gets used and how to make that personally relevant and fulfilling to you.
