|Amy Sanders - Altered and Enhanced Surfaces with Amy Sanders
Working with low-fire earthenware, this workshop will mainly focus on soft slab construction while considering how stamped patterns enhance the surface, with some thrown and altered pots demonstrated as well. Some pieces will be created by pinching, folding, and draping thin slabs over molds, while others will start with simple paper templates. A variety of functional forms will be demonstrated, including serving pieces, vases, sculptural bowls, and wall pieces.
During the hands-on portion of the workshop, participants will make several personal mark-making and texturing tools to use in their own work, as well as create forms such as a vase, altered slab cup, and wall piece. Emphasis in instruction will also be placed on successfully resolving feet, rims, and and handles.
Amy will also share her glaze recipes.
