Bas Relief Workshop Jan. 27 -28 2012
The Village Potters Master Series Presents:
Bas Relief with Nan Jacobsohn
Taking Tiles to a Whole ‘Nother Level
January 27-28, 2012
During this our second workshop with Nan Jacobsohn, we will explore Bas Relief Sculpture: a process that combines the best of two-dimensional and three-dimensional techniques. Sculptural tile, or Bas Relief, is a challenging alternative to the flat tile. We will learn how to sculpt vibrant, exciting surfaces in clay using various handmade texture tooles. Nan will make a plaster mold of a tile in order to press multiple copies. We will cover special considerations and techniques adhering tiles to walls to create large installations.
This demonstration workshop will equip us to return to our studios and explore this intriguing technique within our own work!
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
