Ruth Easterbrook, Instructor and Artist-in-Residence, Ceramics Program

This class connects the head and hand to create a variety of utilitarian forms such as cups, platters, plates and pouring vessels. Bisque molds and hand building techniques provide students a jumping off point to create their own unique forms. A variety of surface techniques will be explored as applied to the ceramic medium as a means of personal expression. From the graphic to the painterly, surface techniques will include the use of colored slips and underglazes on clay. Instruction will be provided January 21st, 22nd and 24th with a supervised “open studio” on the 23rd.  This workshop is for students of all levels. A special session will be arranged for students to glaze their work during the Spring Term.
