Innovative ceramicist Cory Brown presents a two-day workshop on his unique inlay approach to throwing colored clay. Participants will use colored clay on the wheel along with custom wooden rollers to mimic Brown’s technique, which combines pattern, form and color. You’ll also have the opportunity to make nerikomi clay blocks of flowers and simple patterns, as well as more complex imagery. You can expect to learn technical details of working with colored clay including recipes and how to properly prepare colored clay, techniques for storage, and various methods of application for hand building and using press molds.
