Session Description

Slip cast porcelain vessel forms are my current choice of development. I create original forms out of clay and make a plaster cast of it. I am purposely casting thin wall forms to accentuate the translucent qualities of porcelain. I have been applying black and white checks or stripes using a black slip glaze to either the outside or inside of the form, depending on its posture. I use masking tape to stencil the pattern desired and then spray the glaze on. I have been using used or new soft fire brick or limestone for bases on much of the smaller works. I am now experimenting with light weight “autoclaved aerated concrete”. It is super light and very white in color. I will present and demonstrate the process and methods I use in creating my art.
