Hey everybody in the Spring 2011 Good Dirt Intermediate class!
Our class is focused on altering thrown forms, and one of the important ways of changing a shape is to change the surface. This Monday's lesson will deal with how using stamps can create a dynamic interaction between the form and the surface as well as providing great visual interest. Below is a link to another potters blog post that shows some of the cool uses of wood block carvings to create a textured surface. Watch the video of wood block printers in India using this technique on fabrics. The idea is the same when applied to clay.
Hope you enjoy!
