Surfaces Unlimited: Introduction to Surface Decoration Techniques / April 14, 2013

Surfaces Unlimited: Introduction to Surface Decoration TecniquesDesign is one of the most important details of a finished ceramic piece, and integral to the way we execute and think about our work. It is through exploring our sense of design that we deepen our art form and ourselves as artists.

This class will cover a number of surface decoration techniques from slip and glaze application to painted design to sgraffito and surface texture. We will look at individual techniques and at combining techniques to create depth and interesting variation in our work.

Some experience with clay is recommended but not required. Bring ideas, works in progress, finished pieces – anything that you’d
like to embellish, modify, or discuss.

Cost includes firing, use of decorating materials, and some sample demo pieces. Extra clay is available for $8 a bag or you can bring your own. Cone 10 clay is required for this class.Surfaces Unlimited: Introduction to Surface Decoration Tecniques

Baca Street Pottery features ceramic works of seven clay artists whose methods range from traditional processes of coil building and pit firing to raku and cone 10 reduction firing. The gallery and studio display functional ceramics including micaceous cookware as well as sculptural pieces such as bas relief tiles and murals. Utilitarian ware ranges from decorative pottery with painted design to pieces whose decorative quality comes from the applied glaze scheme. Artists use various creation techniques including wheel throwing, hand building, altering, and carving. Baca Street Pottery takes pride in the range of skills and methods employed by each artist. We are community oriented and invite the public to visit our joint gallery and shared studio space to see finished works and works in progress.
