This workshop explores the power of narrative images on clay and how you can utilize 3D printed elements and drawings to construct a narrative image that informs both the picture and form. The use of virtual artifacts, drawing and transfer methods with stencils as well as the use of underglaze and glaze as paint are covered. Ceramic 3D printing, handbuilding, wheel throwing, and press molding techniques are demonstrated to produce sculptural vessels with dynamic compositions. (Please note: this workshop is Saturday from 10am-5pm & Sunday from 10am-4pm with a 1 hour lunch.)
