43 New Techniques with Embedded Colored Clays
Instructor: Dotti Cichon & Meredith Dalglish
Type: Hand building. For all
Date: October 18 -31, 2009


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 simple handbuilding techniques using a few simple tools with which you will be able to make your own sculpture, vessel, or mask and then learn innovative techniques to texture and decorate.  New techniques by Meredith of embedding color and powdered pigment into clay will be shown, along with a variety of texture techniques which she has been developing for several years.  Dotti will demonstrate photo transfer techniques onto clay.  Both artists will demonstrate the use of shards and found objects in work.  Dotti will present simple mask making techniques inspired by the masks she has photographed at the Carnival in Venice over the past decade.  Throughout the workshop, there will be slide presentations for inspiration including Dotti’s photographs of Carnevale and ceramic work by both instructors as well as other ceramic work that will expand your visions of clay as a medium.  For the finale of this two week workshop, we will work together to create a temporary site-specific sculpture as a process piece that will be altered by weather and time using the local clays we have dug and processed while putting to good use all the new techniques we have learned.   

Cost 2.100 € (Includes tuition, lodging, lunches, materials and firings)
