40 Raku and its colours
Sept 28th – Oct. 4th 2014
Ute Grossmann www.ute-grossmann.de
For a superlative use of color with the Raku technique.
Handbuilding and Raku firing. For all

In this hands-on workshop Ute will show how she builds her asymmetrical, playful vessels.
Under her guidance each participant will build one or more forms in hand building technique. Participants will also be invited to bring bisqued pieces, in order to have sufficient material to experiment with design and surfaces decorations.
As an introduction to the creation of an artistic surface Ute will explain the basics of graphic and painting design. She will show her use and processing of engobes, wax and glazes, and demonstrate her reservation technique. Combined with the use of a vivacious color palette and textural lines it opens up wide possibilities for artistic expression. The technique may be applied on vessels, on abstract or sculptural forms, on elements to use for jewellery. All work will be raku fired. During the demos and teaching time, a translator will be available.

Cost: € 960
The workshop fee includes
the following:
- Tuition (class is 6/7  hours per day with 12 hours studio time)
- Materials and firings 
- Lodging in double room; single room on request at extra cost of € 140

Ute Grossmann was born in Dresden, Germany in 1960. Having originally studied Chemical Engineering, she gravitated towards the arts with studies in painting and graphics at the  Academy of Fine Arts, Dresden in 1998/1999. She became a member of the Association of Artists as a freelance ceramicist in 2003 and has since developed a considerable portfolio of ceramic vessels and sculptural objects. Her early work also involved doing mosaic sculptures in public places. All her ceramic art still displays mosaic aspects, but are now also mixed with raku, which has become a more prominent feature over the last years.
Recently she has also introduced porcelain clay with finely structured graphic surfaces.
