Cj Jilek - Transformations in Form & Surface - July 31- August 4, 2020 - $545.00
Workshop Description:
Join Cj Jilek in creating unusual and exuberant works in clay inspired by life forms, patterns, textures, and colors of the natural world. Explore a layered approach to the ceramic surface that evolves from wet clay through bone dry to bisque. Techniques will include hand-building with wooden drape molds, soft slab building, coiling, and texturing to create expressively and surface rich forms. Surface practices will consist of the use of color through underglaze, pattern making, texturing and carving. Students will explore creating depth of surface for both sculptural and utilitarian practices.
