Under The Glaze: Scratching The Surface with Sara Ballek
Under The Glaze: Scratching The Surface with Sara Ballek. 8-weeks, March 20- May 8, Wednesdays 6:30-9pm. Discover how to personalize your work with decorative techniques that will give each piece a unique finish! Using a rich clay body, along with colorful underglazes, and slips, we will explore the ways of how to control and enhance what happens under the final glazing process. During this session, the work made will be fired at different mid-range temperatures to reveal the beautiful reds and browns in the clay body along with the vibrancy of the decorating colors. We will discuss how to maintain different clay consistencies to accomplish various surface techniques. This class will allow students to be flexible in forming their work through hand building and/or wheel throwing. We will treat each piece as a canvas to explore what can happen under the glaze. Level: Seasoned Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Tuition: $310 +$50 Lab Fee.
