For those of you who has always asked "How I create my embroidered surfaces on clay?", I am teaching a workshop at Moshier Community Art Center. Registration now open Decorated Surfaces: Slips
In this one day workshop, I will demonstrate my slip decoration techniques used to create my detailed embroiderd work on clay. Demonstrations on enhancing the look of the ceramic surface will be covered, along with an inspiring slide show showing finished pieces and techniques used for surface decoration. Students will then make their own simple and effective tool to use to create elaborate slip decora tion on leatherhard tiles. All supplies provided. Please bring a lunch.

Here is a preview

Behind the scenes... Making my knitted mugs

Many have asked me about my process and how I make my work. I do get a shocked surprise when I say that my mugs are not made on the wheel, but are individually hand built from slabs of clay.
Slabs are textured, trimmed, cleaned up and then assembled. Then bottoms added, handles added and of course the buttons.
Here is a small clipping showing the assembly of the walls of the mug. I wish I was as fast as this video. :)
