Day one of this two day workshop explores the beginning of form in line, development of contour, and building forms with mass and volume. Harris will demonstrate his slab building techniques, as well as making hammock-molds. On day two, he will demonstrate surface decorating techniques, like incising and inlaying; the use of under glaze decals; and painted terra sigalatta. He will discuss ceramic history, painting, and orchestrating glaze thickness to create emotion through heat and gravity. Deller will encourage questions and open-ended discussion centered on ceramics and creativity.
