The Altered Surface
Molly will demonstrate the large range of techniques she uses in her own work for surface decoration on greenware and bisqueware. Through discussion of her process, Molly will provide step-by-step instruction to achieve decorative surfaces. Attendees will leave the workshop with working knowledge of techniques covered: Mishima (Japanese slip inlay), Sgraffito (slip carving), sprig molds, slip trailing, shellac relief as well as use of underglazes on bisque.
During the Hands On section of the presentation, Molly will walk you through the application of her demonstrated techniques on the surface of a greenware tile. Attendees will be able to try some or all of the processes discussed with tips from Molly.
