About The Event

Power Hour

Ceramic surface design can be similar to that of a canvas  telling a story. We will explore effective ways to compose  imagery on slabs and then onto vertical forms. With a brief  look at classic ceramic design, we will then discuss line,  texture, slips, underglaze, and oxides. Techniques like  sgraffito, Mishima, paper and tape masking, and wax resist will also be introduced. In the process of creating new surfaces for  his work, Chris will inspire you to think about surfaces in new  ways.
