Do you want to make narrative ceramic work but have no idea where to begin? In this class, students will be guided in developing a distinctive and personal vocabulary through handbuilt pottery and sculptural forms. We will explore surface decoration through sgraffito, slips, mishima, glaze, terra sigillata, and color on earthenware. By combining form with a decorative voice, students will learn to navigate their surfaces in meaningful ways. All levels. Code f00cb
