Advanced Clay Series: Mishima and Water Etching | JAC @ 2 pm
June 29 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm$54 – $60
Mishima is a technique of inlaying color into the main clay body of the pottery piece. This technique creates extremely fine, intricate design work with hard, sharp edges that can be difficult to reliably replicate in any other way. Water etching is another surface decoration technique. It is executed by covering part of the clay surface with a resist material. The exposed areas are then abrading using a wet sponge. This is a great technique to add depth and visual interest to a surface while keeping a very clean and simple finish. Students will learn how to use these techniques together. Tips, tool choice and material guidance will be covered as well as suggested designs.
• teacher will bring wax, plastic sheeting for image transfer, underglazes, waterproof paper, cutting tools, slip, tape, & sponges
• students should bring 3-4 leather hard pots with smooth surface, a gallon sized bucket, 1” soft bristle brush, needle tool, clean cloth rag for drying hands, soft red rib, x-acto knife, and any reference imagery they may like.
