Happiness is a Warm Extruder: “Extruding and Slab-building Functional Forms” with Hayne Bayless
November 1-14, 2020
In this workshop we'll explore extrusion and slab techniques as they relate to making functional stoneware. Our approach will be to let the process show in the work, keeping in mind if we keep out of clay’s way, the material will reveal its true nature and the results will remain fresh and lively. We will work with unconventional forming methods and unusual approaches to surface decoration. Myths will be busted and secrets revealed. Topics include: cutting stencils from Tyvek; colored slip inlay and stretched slabs; liquid latex resist and deer-tail brushes; fashioning tools out of common materials and modifying existing ones to suit specific needs; and how to make custom extruder dies. This workshop will also interest throwers looking to expand their horizons beyond the wheel.
Open to all levels of experience.
