In this class we will go beyond basic glazing and learn several techniques for decorating our pots. We will make our own colored slips and combine them with hand building techniques to make vibrant one of a kind pieces. We will use the slips to learn about sgraffito which is applying colored slip and then carving through it. We will create our own colored slip transfers. We will learn about Mishima which is carving into the clay and then filling in the lines with underglaze. And finally we will have fun with underglaze decals to really up our decorating game. Pieces will be covered with clear or celadon glazes. Though we will learn the techniques using hand built pieces, these techniques can also be applied to wheel-thrown work.
