This workshop will focus on the magic and depth of color possible when using copper matt glazes in the raku kiln. With the goal of achieving a variety of iridescent metallic colors, students will participate in group firings throughout the weekend. Glazing and masking techniques for creating designs on your work will be demonstrated. Students bring their own bisque ware to fire.

|Developing A Personal Statement
Once the skills of throwing, constructing or building have developed sufficiently, we can turn our attention to the question of what makes your work personal? Investigating the development of surface, altering of forms, slip decoration and the addition of decorative elements will yield new avenues of personal expression over the course of this weekend workshop.
