    Carving and Altering Images

    with Kyle Guymon
    Virtual One-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
    July 18thth | Time: 1:00- 3:00p.m. ET
    I will demonstrate how I set up and prepare a vessel for carving.  I will demonstrate how to double rib a form to compress the clay walls, remove any throw rings, extra slip or moisture , to leave a smooth surface on the inside as well as the out.  By doing this it allows the clay walls to dry more evenly, giving you the ability to manipulate the clay walls without cracking.  By removing the throw rings from the inside it allows you to push the image out from the inside without distorting the image.  I will then demonstrate how to draw, transfer and push an image (elephant) out of the vessel so it looks 3D as if the image is coming out of the vessel without adding any clay or weight to the form.  I will then demonstrate how to manipulate the image by pushing in and out, relief carving and cleaning up the carved image.  The main focus of this workshop is for students to understand clay moisture, image transfer, clay manipulation and relief carving an image without adding clay to the form.
