Surface Decoration & cone 6 Glazing
Surface Decoration I is a four-week class that will focus on surface decoration on greenware forms made from Georgies G-Mix 6, Trail Mix Chocolate and Trillium clay bodies. You will use a variety of techniques to create texture on your forms and work with slip, sgraffito, Mishima, stencils and monoprinting.
Surface Decoration II will focus on the differences between glazes & underglazes, firing temperatures, brushing methods, using wax resist, and glaze combinations during the four week class. You will be given 40 (6" x 6") bisque tiles to practice the lessons learned in this class as well as whatever you made from the first class.
Both classes include instruction, materials, firing, and studio time to practice what you have learned.
