with Amy Sanders
Tuesdays, 6 classes
10am – 12pm
Winter Session 1 (Jan 10, 17, 24, 31, Feb 7, 14)
Winter Session 2 (Feb 28, March 7, 14, 21, 28, April 4)
We will experiment with many of the pre and post firing surface techniques. Students will have the option to throw on the potter’s wheel, or make hand-built forms. This class will explore the techniques of inlay, sgraffito, slip transfers, slip trailing, terra sigillata, and everything in between. This class will allow for the exploration of surface decoration on functional and sculptural works. All skill levels are welcome, so join in and let’s scratch the surface of surface decoration.

Phoenix – Best for Beginners– Made by Highwater Clays. Fires to a light tan in color. Great clay for beginners. Smooth enough to throw on the potter’s wheel, but strong enough to withstand most hand-building techniques. Can be fired from Cone 6 to Cone 10.
Speckled Brownstone – Made by Highwater Clays. Fires to a light brown in color with small black specs. Great for throwing on the potter’s wheel. Can be fired to Cone 6.
