About this Event
Terra Sigillata is an ultra refined clay slip that is used to create a smooth, velvet-y texture on your pottery. This can be used alone or in advance of raku firing to provide a better surface for absorbing smoke.
In class, we will be:
1) Making a terra sig
2) Preparing an already made terra sig
3) Learning how to apply to bone dry pottery
4) Learning how different burnishing tools give different final results
Important: You will need to bring your own bone dry greenware (unfired, completely dry) pottery. We will have a limited amount of terra sigillata, but if we have extra, you are more than welcome to do extra pieces. Once the batch we make in class is ready (1-2 days), you can use it for additional pots as well.
We will be doing a special, lower temperature firing to help preserve the texture of the results.
Any questions, please feel free to contact me at cmcooper0 on Talk or the same ID at gmail.
Special Considerations and Warnings
Reminder: You will need to bring your own bone-dry greenware (completely dry, unfired) pottery.
