Exploring & Using Terra Sigillata with Hand Built Earthenware
Terra sigillata surfaces have rich historical roots and traditions. Moving beyond those traditions, terra sigillata can be colored, layered and enhanced. This workshop studies those enhancements. Participants employ red earthenware, hand building, daily creative discoveries and other surface materials to create patterns, layered designs and weathered surfaces. While this workshop focuses on terra sigillata techniques and applications, it also encourages creative inquiry, exploration and risk taking.
