SKILL LEVEL: A basic understanding of ceramics is necessary. No drawing skills are needed as participants can take a photo of their desired imagery and copy it with tracing paper.

With the world continuing to be off balance, I’m trying to find some simplicity and serenity. What better way to do that than create a wall piece that features a visual element that brings peace of mind. Whether it’s a morning cup of coffee or listening to a singing bird that relaxes you, we can create a wall piece centered around it.

The focus of this class will be the detailed painting on the surface of your wall piece. With that in mind and with the help of several pre-recorded videos, participants will create their own wall piece prior to class, allowing enough drying time for the wall piece to be in the bone dry stage a few days prior to class.

Instructional videos will demonstrate the following: creating and preparing slabs to make a wall piece, how to remove the canvas texture from slabs, discussion of design options, creating a template to cut your wall piece from a slab of clay, prep for underglaze painting, basic underglaze painting, background blending and design transfer.

The class recording focuses on painting the design on the wall shrine which will include blending smaller areas of color, outlining images with black underglaze using a detail brush and sgraffito work.

PLEASE WATCH VIDEOS 1-18 PRIOR TO THE CLASS RECORDING.  THESE VIDEOS ILLUSTRATE THE STEPS YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE IN ORDER TO BE READY FOR THE INFORMATION THAT IS PRESENTED IN THE CLASS RECORDING:

  1. Watch pre-recorded videos 1-5. This will give you a basic understanding of the way I approach underglaze painting and design.

Consider your design first.

  1. Creativity exercise: What is it that gives you a sense of serenity? Nature, coffee, tea, music, sleep, dogs, cats, etc.
  2. Find visual elements that you want to develop into your design.
  3. Create your design, transfer it onto a manilla folder or cover stock and cut it out.

Creating your slab (Videos 6-9).

  1. Using a rolling pin or slab roller, create your slab and remove the canvas texture.
  2. Lay your template on your slab gently and using a needle tool, cut out your wall piece.
  3. Gently remove the unused slab from around your wall piece.
  4. Transfer the wall piece to your ware board for drying.

Underglaze Painting (Videos 10-17).

  1. Decide what color you want your wall piece background to be.
  2. Wipe down your bone dry sculpture with a sponge to remove any dirt or rough areas.
  3. After letting your piece dry thoroughly, apply your first layer of underglaze with a brush.
  4. After letting your piece dry thoroughly, apply your second layer of underglaze with a brush.
  5. After letting your piece dry thoroughly, apply your third layer of underglaze with a brush.

Finalize your design (Video18).

  1. Cover your piece while you finish working on your design. (This keeps the surface of the underglaze free of dust until you’re ready to begin painting in the details during class.)
  2. Break your design down into sections for color blocking and create templates or design transfers on tracing paper.
  3. Pencil or transfer your design onto your piece.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you will be ready for class!

Videos 19-26 go into specific steps in my underglaze painting process. These are also covered in the class recording.
