Some of us have a love-hate relationship with porcelain. In this workshop, Jacob Monroe will be demonstrating the techniques he uses to make his artwork, including wheel-thrown forms and attaching hand-built and slip casted parts using an ultra-fine New Zealand clay body. He will discuss some of the technical characteristics of porcelain that are commonly associated with creating issues including cracking, detached handles, drying, and glaze fit while building sculptural functional ware. Jacob believes in enabling the community by sharing clay and glaze recipes that he has been developing over the last 6 years; all recipes used in the demo will be shared!
You Will Learn:
1. Learn big-picture characteristics of porcelaneous clay bodies that will help improve their success working with the medium and how I apply that information to my artwork.
2. Learn techniques on how to throw a clay body that has a reputation for being less-than-awesome to throw and cast.
3. Participants will receive glaze and clay recipes that I have grown to cherish and have spent the last 6 years developing. We will leave the class grasping the basic understanding of how to make your porcelain on a small scale.
A PDF of recipes and materials I use will be sent to participants during the online demonstration.
Notepad and pencil for notes
