Kenny will demonstrate how he records dimensions of 3d surface areas, creates and digitizes a template design for ceramic pieces, designs/cuts stencils, and how to use stencils to apply slips and glazes to bisqueware. He will work with participants to measure their own premade bisqueware to create stencils specifically for their pots, letting attendees choose from a premade set of tessellating patterns. We will be working with cylindrical forms, but measuring and applying stencils to irregular pots will be covered via demos so participants can take what they learn and apply it to more complex shapes in the future. Partipants will also use Still Life's glazes/underglazes to complete the piece. Please bring 5 cylindrical bisque ware pots only (as close to perfectly vertical walls as possible) between 3" and 12" in height -- (no greenware). Partipants will also have access to Still Life's machine and materials for up to (2) weeks after the workshop to continue creating designs.
