Terra sigillata surfaces have rich historical roots and traditions. Moving beyond those traditions, terra sigillata can be colored, layered and enhanced. This course studies those enhancements. Incorporating the use of red earthenware, hand building and daily creative discoveries, we use terra sigillata and other surface materials as a means to create patterns, layered designs and weathered surfaces. This workshop focuses on terra sigillata techniques and applications and fosters an environment that encourages creative inquiry.
