SOLD OUT Introduction to Sgraffito Pottery with Kandy Gibson

Sunday, March 19:  1-4 pm

Sgraffito, an Italian word meaning "to scratch away", is a decorative pottery technique produced by applying layers of color (underglazes or colored slips) to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layers to reveal the clay color underneath and create contrasting images, patterns and texture. In this workshop, students will be given a 10-inch plate in a leather hard state (still moist clay but firm enough to hold) that has been covered in a black engobe. Participants will transfer their idea to the plate, using sgraffito techniques. Each participant will select a color glaze for the rim. (Students will first practice on a small tile.) The plates are then taken back to the studio to dry, fire and glaze. Plates will be ready for pickup two weeks later. There is an additional fee of $50 payable to the instructor on the day of class to cover her time and cost in clay, underglazes, glazes, in throwing each plate and two firings. Students should come to class with ideas; trees, birds, flowers all make great subject matter. A search on google images can be helpful with ideas and drawing. Visualize in black and white….we are starting with a black surface and carving away to the white background.
