Explore the possibilities of soft slab construction and bisque molds!

This two-hour, all-demonstration workshop with Amy Sanders will cover the entire process of creating a noodle bowl: From adding stamped surface decoration to the blank canvas of a slab, building the form, adding color and surface sheen with terra sigillata, and finishing with patina and glaze.

You'll also learn how to:

  • Handbuild a bowl using a bisque drape mold
  • Utilize stamps to create a composition with textures
  • Consider a variety of solutions for the foot of the bowl that is harmonious with the form and its function
  • Add an additional slab rim to the bowl to increase interior volume
  • Use terra sigillata to add color and wonderful buttery sheen to the surface
  • Finish the surface with patina and glaze
