Pots that Sing: Naked Raku

Pots that Sing: Naked Raku

In this multi-faceted workshop, Ellen will share her favorite tools, tips and techniques that add dynamic textures and finishes that make the surfaces of her work sing. Students will learn to create a variety of forms using soft slab construction and will also learn to make and use latex rubber molds which will be theirs to keep.

The week will also include the excitement and drama of Naked Raku firing. Students will participate in utilizing slips, horsehair, feathers and ferns to bring about some unexpected and unique surfaces. Topping that off will be the application of post firing finishes that really bring the work to life. It promises to be an action packed week of pottery fun.
