Swirlware is made by combining contrasting colors of clay when throwing. In this demonstration three techniques will be used to throw Swirlware. The first technique will be throwing one color on the inside of a bowl with multiple colors on the exterior. The second will be wide swathes of contrasting colors on a vase. The third and final technique will show thin striations of several colors.

http://britypost.com/?ws=Cialis-Uk-Cheap&940=4b 11-1:30  $25

This workshop will cover the basic techniques of maiolica glazing and painting. Maiolica, (or majolica) is a smooth, white glaze that serves as a “canvas” for painting with colored stains and overglazes, creating a richly colored, glossy surface. Since maiolica preserves your brushstrokes well when fired, you can achieve beautifully painted surfaces whose only limits are your own imagination.

Participants in the workshop will learn pouring and splash-glazing techniques and how to prepare pots for painting. We will learn how to mix colored stains as well as use pre-mixed overglaze colorants. We will explore basic painting techniques on glazed pots, including layering, background colors and outlining.

Jonathan and Janice Millman have been making pots together for over 20 years, starting in Boulder, Colorado where they both studied with Betty Woodman. Here in upstate New York, they started a ceramics business together specializing in maiolica-glazed earthenware pottery, and have shown and sold their work all across the country. They both have BFA’s from Alfred University and MFA’s from the University of Colorado.

“Coiling Building” 

11-1:30  $25

Coil building is one of the earliest methods used to form clay into vessels. I learned a simple method from Bruno La Verediere at a workshop at Potter Northwest in Seattle, WA in 1972. I have created many floor vases and lamps using this method. I find coil building a useful way to make large round or oval vases and tall plant stands for indoor and garden use. I will teach this simple technique as a method to form small to very large pots of any shape. Additionally, I also will demonstrate ways to embellish work with the use of coils. Participants in the workshop will also be given time to start a coil building project.

Artistic Statement
I have been working in stoneware and porcelain for over 30 years, striving to explore the infinite possibilities presented by clay, producing work that ranges from functional ware for daily use to sculptural, nonfunctional pieces.
The sights, textures, and rhythms of the natural world shape the way I think about my work, and I find insights from Japanese folk pottery, and 19th century American salt glazed pottery. Because I believe that mastery of every aspect of ceramics is essential to being a clay artist, I mix my own clay and glazes and build and repair my kilns. I like high temperature reduction firing because I never have complete control of how the flame affects the pieces. There is always an element of mystery. When I open the kiln, there will be surprising discoveries
