UNDERGLAZE DECORATION WITH KATY LEVIT
Students will learn a variety of decoration techniques using brightly colored underglazes to add interest to their pots.
• Learn how to apply underglaze decals to greenware and bisque.
• Learn how to apply newsprint transfer decoration to greenware .
• Learn how to sgrafitto on greenware.
In order to have pieces to work on, participants will learn how to make pressed platters and/or hump mold pots out of slabs. Decals, underglazes, newsprint and clay will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring up to 3 pieces of their own greenware (for newsprint transfer, sgrafitto or decals) or bisque (decals only) to decorate. Students should bring sgrafitto/carving tools and paintbrushes if they have them. If not, we will have some for students to use.
Group will break for 1 hour lunch.
