Utilizing Slips and Terra Sigillatas with Ronan Peterson


This workshop will focus on building up backgrounds and surfaces using various slips and terra sigillatas to create rich and varied foundations for further glaze treatment.

Ronan will demonstrate techniques including slipping wet ware, hakame, sgraffito and champleve, paper resist and stencils, slip trailing, and patterning using wax resist and slip, underglazes, and discuss post bisque glaze layering.

Even though Ronan will focus on functional pots, using red earthenware clay, and firing in electric kilns, handbuilders and sculptors alike, firing in all types of kilns and atmospheres can gain some surface treatment ideas and experience in this lively demonstration workshop.

Cost is $100
