Kristen Kieffer Cup Grouping

Mugs by Kristen Kieffer

2nd Annual Dirty South Cup Call 
~GAEDA Education Series~

Altered & Ornamented

Our workshop will focus on altering wheel-thrown (or hand-built) forms a little and a lot. We will then embellish those forms with an array of decoration techniques from stamping and slip-trailing to sponging and resists. The result can be functional or sculptural, minimal, or extravagant. You will leave the workshop with a collection of new skills and the confidence to play and draw from your own influences.

Demonstrations include throwing, altering and building off the wheel, darting, and a variety of decoration techniques including: slip-trailing, stamp-making, and stamping. We will discuss aesthetics and proportion, timing in clay, idea-generation, and progressing one’s own work with learned techniques.

Participants will make stamps as well as play with slip-trailing and paper resist.
