Doug Peltzman Workshop: August 23-26: Intermediate to Experienced
This is a workshop fit for intermediate to experienced makers. The focus of this workshop will be in the designing, making, and finishing of high fire porcelain tableware in an electric kiln. You are encouraged to bring source material for surface treatment as well as high fire bisque ware. This will get the class thinking about glazing and compositional strategies from day one. The relationship between form and surface will be explored through practice, demonstration and discussion. Doug will share his techniques on incising and inlaying into leather hard clay along with his ideas about engineering pots specifically for runny translucent glazes. This class will provide the tools and techniques necessary to explore texture, line, and color as a way to blend your ideas and concepts with tactile discovery.
