Altered Forms with Carol Long

Carol LongA thrown or hand built form may often be deemed "complete" once it is formed. To Carol Long, this initial creation is just the beginning. 

In this intense, hands-on, two-day workshop attendees will expand upon their ceramic form using altering techniques and slip trailing as decoration. Participants will learn about adding elaborate, flowing handles and detailed imagery using slip trailing.

We will provide you with a basic vessel which you will transform into decorative vase/pitcher. You will work interactively with Carol implementing her techniques and asking questions on her processes and techniques. All supplies provided; several of the decorating tools are yours to keep after the workshop. 

Carol's Artist's Statement:

"My work continues to evolve. Currently, I use a white mid temperature clay body fired to cone 5 oxidation. Pieces are made by a variety of methods; such as throwing, slab work, extrusions, and hand building. Decorating with pulled handles, attached multiple pieces, textured with presses, slip trailing, stains and glazes. I am inspired by botanical life and hidden aspects of nature. I emulate my inspirations with an elaborate flow of shape, line, and texture. My work begins with shape and form. Depth is added through texture. Intricate slip application and glazing brings organic unity to the finished piece."
