2019 Summer Arts - Maggie Jaszczak
This workshop will focus on hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques. Students will turn simple 2-dimensional shapes into complex 3-dimensional forms using plywood cut-outs both as slump molds as well as templates for bisque molds. We will cover basic wheel-throwing, as well as throwing of simple forms to be used off the wheel as building blocks for form. In addition, we will explore decorating techniques for the green-ware stage, including slip and terra sigillata, and discuss decorating options for bisque- and glaze-work. While this class will be loosely based in utility, all techniques are easily extended to sculptural forms.
