CREATING Depth Through Surface Decoration

with Mike Gesiakowski
Virtual One-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
April 11, 2021 | 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
This workshop will allow students to learn how to create surface depth on their pottery by using a combination of slips, underglazes, and glazes. Mike will demonstrate how to build layers of information on your work to create a deep, expansive surface. Students will also be shown how vinyl stencils can be used to create patterns and decorations to enhance the feeling of dimension in your work. This workshop will utilize low-fire materials and electric kilns to obtain these results, but the techniques learned can be applicable for any temperature.
