This workshop will bridge the gap between using form and surface to depict narrative. We’ll begin by using basic clay building techniques—slab, pinch, coil—to create stylized figurative components. Once the figurative objects are complete, they will become 3-D canvases that we’ll use to explore a number of decorating techniques involving building layers and carving back into them. We’ll discuss why storytelling is important and offer tools to develop a creative way to recount or invent history. Firing not included.
