Clay is Your Canvas

Clay is Your Canvas

Clay has the ultimate surface for decoration and embellishment. In this 2 day workshop we will investigate decorative techniques using underglazes and slips. With the consideration of surface, colour, balance, texture, pattern and design the student will construct a vocabulary of hand built forms and imagery that work with the individual’s aesthetics. Both greenware and bisque pieces will be explored. Slip trailing, stamping, sgraffito, inlay, mono-printing are a few on the menu. Functional hand-built forms will be constructed with the emphasis of interplay between surface and form.

NOTE: There will be NO firing in this workshop.

Clay has been part of Laura’s identity since childhood. Working with clay has always felt intuitive to her. As a pre-adolescent at her first pottery class, she felt as if she had rediscovered an old friend. She could create anything in her imagination and portray it in an earthy solid medium. The tactile qualities of the clay delighted her then, and still do decades later. Laura studied at the School of Art and Design of the Witwatersrand Technikon in South Africa.
