Surrounding the core ideas of making art objects—content, craft and courage—this workshop investigates handbuilding techniques by focusing on small/medium figurative and abstract sculptures and using multiple firing and reglazing techniques. Starting with a high vitrification point, the workshop begins with firing in a wood, soda, or reduction kiln to produce unexpected surfaces and colors, then starts the reglazing process at midrange to low fire, landing on luster and China paints. In this reglazing process, students try custom glazes and alter manufactured glazes to create their own palette, and experiment with over- and under-glazes. Alongside making, students take photos of work being produced, printing out on paper to encourage ideas for glaze/slip compositions; these works often become finished art in themselves. The goal is to push students’ making and glazing skills in conjunction with content, craft, and courage of the work.
