Ceramic Processes

Today I have trying out different ceramic processes for the first time. We had a workshop with one of the ceramic technical staff Matt. He started of the workshop by showing use a wide range of different process that you can use with raw clay that hasn’t gone in the kiln to be fired. He showed us how to do scraffitto, slip decoration, slip trailing and paper resist, and told us to select the ones which we thought that would work with our ideas and what we wanted to try the most. Therefore I tried out Scraffitto and slip trailing, I really enjoy the scraffitto due that fact that allows you to draw directly on to the clay and the marks that you end up leaving behind add a lot of texture and it indents the clay leaving a mark. I feel Like I could possibly use this for my final plates as it work quite well for the garden them as it makes the clay still feel a bit raw and exposed.
