Are you looking to add more colour and pattern to your pots and help them stand out from the crowd, but don’t know where to start? Layered Surfaces is a step-by-step workshop that will teach you how to elevate the surface of your pots and stop being afraid of decorating your work!
In the Layered Surfaces workshop, you’ll learn how to use simple products and tools to elevate the surface of your pots, and bring more colour and depth to your work. You’ll learn my signature method of working with newsprint cutouts to create pattern and depth on your pots, in just 2 hours!
In this workshop I will teach you how to add more colour and depth to your work by showing you how to:
- Use newsprint cutouts to add pattern and unique designs to your pots.
- Layer underglazes and transparent slip to create rich and layered surfaces on your pottery.
- Learn my strategies for working with colour.
- Learn how I approach integrating surface and form, to create unique pots that stand out from the crowd.
And as a bonus, I’m also including these lessons free of charge:
- A video of how I mix my joining slip
- A resource page with some ideas for where to get inspiration for adding texture and creating patterns.
- A PDF download of my White Slip and Clear Glaze recipes (for use at cone 6 and under).
- An overview of all the tools I use most in my studio.
About The Instructor
Hi, I’m Naomi Clement, I’m a ceramic artist, teacher, and creative entrepreneur. I’ve been working in clay for over 22 years, and I’ve taught workshops and exhibited my work all across Canada and the US. I have my BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, and my MFA in Ceramics from Louisiana State University.
Today I am well known for the rich and layered surfaces on my pots, but I used to be terrified of decorating my work. You might not believe it, but I was your typical “close my eyes and dip and dunk” kinda glazer! All of that changed when I started using the techniques I show you in this workshop. It opened up a whole new way of thinking about and decorating my work, and I’ve never looked back. I created this workshop to share some of the basic strategies that have worked for me, and help you learn how to create your own unique pots!
