Santa Fe Clay-Slip & Soda


In this fast-paced workshop, Brenda will share her techniques for throwing and altering functional pottery forms using slip techniques that are enhanced through atmospheric firing. Students will experiment with a variety of thrown forms and will develop luscious, tactile surfaces using thick decorative slip applications. Participants will learn about the application of glazes and flashing slips for use with porcelain clay, and the class will load and fire the soda kiln. Be ready to discover new alternatives to form and surface that add life and vitality to your pottery! Students should bring 3-5 bisque pots, made from cone 10 clay, to use for glaze experimentation in the soda kiln. Dry work will be bisqued.
