Lauren Karle Workshop: July 26-29, 2017: ALL LEVELS!
Sewing Clay: Slip Transferred Patterns on Slab-built Pots
Pattern can reference culture; it can imply time and place. In this workshop we will slip transfer meaningful patterns onto slabs of clay. By experimenting with layers of prints, texture, painting, resist, and more our surfaces will be visually interesting and embedded with significance. Using our decorated slabs we will hand build pots by darting and seaming. Lectures about pattern and form development will allow each participant to expand their ideas. We will discuss how pattern and color can be used to enhance volume, merging surface and form.
