Creation in Clay with Jim Romberg, August 4 & 5
This will be an intensive 2-day workshop using handbuilding, slab and press moulding to investigate sculptural and functional expressions in clay. The emphasis will be on experimentation and innovation and the use of multiple outside sources for inspiration.
Techniques for surface enhancement and texturing such as brush and original tool making will be presented. Slip decoration and coloration will be demonstrated using various application techniques such as stencil, spray, multi-layering and transfer.
For the beginner this workshop will be an exciting introduction to shaping clay, and for the advanced student it will serve to further develop already existing expressions. Students will choose several pieces to be fired and made available after the workshop is over.
