Handbuilding & Surface Decoration with Chandra DeBuse
Saturday, June 9, 9:00-5:00.
$50 Students, $75 Public
Learn new ways of designing, building and illustrating functional pottery with Chandra DeBuse. Chandra will share how she uses inexpensive materials like paper, craft foam, wood & bisqued clay to generate forms through hand building with soft clay slabs. Chandra will demonstrate how she uses texture, underglaze inlay, sgraffito and brushwork to create lively surfaces with characters and patterns. Although the techniques and discussion will cover pottery and surfaces for mid-range electric, the workshop will be valuable for anyone striving to develop a more cohesive relationship between form and surface in their own clay work.
