Simple & Complex - Form & Color
This workshop explores making simple and complex forms through hand building with stoneware clay. Participants explore these ideas through abstraction, reductive composition, compound forms, repetition and multiples. Colored slips, underglazes and glazes are used to investigate both monochromatic and complicated color relationships. Surface complexity is examined through layering, blending, sgraffito, stencils, stamping, etc. Students finish their work with salt-glazing and electric firings at cone 6.
