From Flat to Form: Slab Building with Texture, Color, and Vernacular Reference
The idea of nostalgia in the mundane is a point of reference and contrast in Jeremy’s work. Looking to the objects and architecture of use in the rural and industrial world, he makes reference to the beautiful forms in the often overlooked, and glorifies the stains of age and time. Jeremy will demonstrate and discuss the use of various template options in the construction of architecturally inspired vessels, discuss how non- ceramic materials such as steel tacks and wire can be added to give visual interest as well as a point of reference, and will provide technical information regarding the use of terra sigillata as a finish. Form and surface are inextricable, one informing the other, and both informing the user/viewer. This building of form and surface throughout the process helps develop a vessel that alludes to age and wear, allows for the textured surface to be accentuated, and provides some variability and surprise in an electric kiln.
Jeremy will demonstrate the following:
- How to use various template options
- How to use non ceramic materials to give visual interest
- Using terra sigillata as a surface finish
