New Materials in Ceramics

Creating unique and individual ceramic pieces is more than just thinking about color and clay’ but also texture. We are inspired by our natural environment to search for materials to add new forms, shapes and textures to our pieces. In this class, you will explore how to add elements or incorporate your pieces that mimic nature. We will approach our work as research with final piece produced.The first class, you will explore how to incorporate natural elements into your ceramic practice through a series of tests that you will create. We will provide natural elements, such as plants, rocks, seeds, shells (but you can also bring some of your own!). The second class, we will discuss the results of the tests and design a final form that you would like to make to incorporate your natural elements from your tests. This class does not use glaze, but we can glaze the interior for water resistance. Looking forward to seeing how you bring nature into your practice!5h workshop in 2 days with coffee and cookies
