44 New Techniques with Embedded Colored Clays
Instructor: Dotti Cichon & Meredith Dalglish
Type: Hand building. For all
Date: October 31 – November 7, 2010

Learn how to identify, dig and process your own multi-colored rich colors of Tuscan clay to use in your work. Meredith & Dotti will demonstrate a few simple tools and techniques that result in rich, complex effects that appear to be more difficult to make than they are. Meredith will introduce new techniques that she has innovated and developed such as embedding color and powdered pigment into clay. Dotti, a photographer as well as a ceramic artist, will demonstrate photo transfer techniques onto clay. Both artists will demonstrate how to incorporate shards and found objects into clay as a fine art form.

On November 7th, we'll offer an optional field trip to the Antiques Street Market in Arezzo to enable you to find souvenirs of your workshop in Tuscany to take home with you to incorporate in future work inspired by this workshop.

Throughout this fun and informative workshop, there will be photo presentations to inspire you by expanding your visions of clay as an artistic medium beyond functional. We will work together to create a temporary site-specific sculpture as a process piece using the local clays we have dug and processed while putting to good use the new techniques learned in this workshop.
