The Graphic Pot with Jason Bige Burnett
In this edition of the Ceramic Arts Daily Presents Video Series, Jason Bige Burnett shares his techniques for creating colorful, handbuilt pots with a graphic punch! Combining his background in printmaking and graphic design with his love of clay, Jason begins with an in-depth introduction to screen printing – from how to mix emulsion, to burning a screen in an easy-to-assemble exposure unit at home, Jason doesn’t miss a beat. Next, he details how to make ordinary ceramic underglazes and engobes suitable for screen printing and then shares his process for screening them onto newsprint for transferring later to clay work. Jason then demonstrates how he makes a number of handbuilt forms and tops it all off with an explanation of additional decorative techniques he uses in the glazing and post firing process.
Runtime: Approximately 2 hours, 52 minutes
