Slippin and Slabbin with Sang Roberson

June 24th – June 28th
10 am – Noon and 1 pm – 5 pm
Levels: All

The focus of this workshop will be making forms in low-fire clays including terra cotta, paper clay and commercial slip. I teach slab and coil construction with slip trailing techniques for making boxes, vessels and wall pieces. We fire first in electric kilns then pit-fire using different methods of firing. We will also experiment with pre and post pit firing techniques. Mason stains & minerals will be added to terra sigillata to create the color palettes for the works. We will address the issue of form and its appropriate surfaces as well as the issue of volume. Use and application of metal leafing and the changes it undergoes in pit-firing are also included.
Tuition: $450 Member
