Mishima Variations: Thoughtful Graphic Design & Surface Alteration
November 11, 2017 – Bryce Hemington
10:00 to 3:00 with an hour off for lunch
In this workshop, Bryce will be focusing on several different slip application techniques he uses to create surfaces that are vibrant and interesting. Bryce incorporates his graphic design skills and wax masking to create a variation of traditional Mishima slip decoration. He also does slip trailing, thick slip application, and altering.
This workshop will include hands-on time, and participants are encouraged to bring leather hard cylinders to practice on. You will also have access to wheels, clay, and slabs to practice on.
