Day 3 of 3
Natural objects with patterned imagery surround us in the environment. These will provide inspiration for making pieces from layered, colored clay. It is an exceptional medium for expressing the beauty of fluid movement, the effects of water and wind that transform shells, rock and wood. We will wedge stains into porcelain and layer the different colors into a block. By slicing, carving, rolling and pinching, multi-dimensional effects are revealed. The colored clay integrates the designs with functional or sculptural forms, connecting hand with water and earth. Prior experience with clay is helpful but not essential.
