Join former Ceramics Program Artist-in-Residence and instructor Ruth Easterbrook in a virtual demonstration of her unique method of glazing to create her inviting utilitarian ware. Over this two day event, the artist will share some of her inspiration for her surface design using and interpreting botanicals elements as seen in the natural world and art history. During her demonstration, Ruth will share new ways of thinking of glaze as a pallet of not only colors but also using the other qualities of glaze as well. Participants will observe how she plans and executes her complex surfaces using tape, wax resist, and glaze. Through breaking down her techniques into multiple parts and sharing her tricks and tips, it will become clear that you can try them too! And will be encouraged to try their hand at home if they like, strengthening their understanding by getting hands-on experience and feedback. There will be a lunch break each day.
If you would like to work alongside Ruth, please review the materials list on the registration page to make sure you have everything you need.
