These mugs and a huge planter were made from a clay slab, without potter's wheel. We will create cups, vases, planters, lamps or bowls on the base of cylinder - one of the simplest shapes.
We will learn not only how to sculpt them, but also - how to decorate.
TIPS AND TECHNIQUES - FROM THE WORLD OF PROFESSIONAL CERAMISTS
We use the simplest materials and techniques for ceramics, the ones that turn out well every time and for everybody. These examples are the projects of students of our decoration basics course, which we have been conducting for 5 years. As you can see in the collages - they don't look primitive! These techniques allow you to paint ceramics even before the first firing and create a maximum reveal of the author's individuality. We use colored clays - engobes, as well as different methods of texture making and so get a wide variety of surfaces. We use glazes as an addition for shine and as a practical necessity if we're making dishes.
