Now you have some mastery over the form, the next challenge is making the final piece come out as you expect it to. This 8-week course is focused on adding surface treatments at all stages. Demonstrations will cover both handbuilding and wheel-thrown techniques, so some clay experience is necessary. Topics include slip decoration, wax resist, carving, water etching, and decorative techniques like glaze trailing. Clay can be purchased through the studio by calling 271 - 5183; we carry cone 6 and cone 10 bodies. Included: 20 pounds of firing, access to slip, and Open Studio hours.
