36 The Agate technique
Susan Nemeth - susannemeth.co.uk
September 2nd - 8th, 2012

Handbuilding. For all


Decorating using coloured porcelain and hand building using slabs. In this course we will explore colour, pattern and imagery using various techniques of staining and layering slips and porcelains. The decoration will be integral. The technique involves laminating sheets of coloured clays inlaid with hand cut patterns, rolling and stretching the layers to create tiles and simple shapes formed starting from flat sheets of clay with some use ofmoulds. It includes drawing with the knife to make fine inlay, using sheets of clays to create collage, layering, cutting and re combining to generate neriage, producing inlay from impressions and painting and pouring slips. Finishing techniques will enhance the pure qualities of the clay with a range of strong, pure colour and soft, matt feel. There will be plenty of demonstrations and students will develop their design and technical skills and have ample opportunity to experiment freely.
