This workshop introduces students to the brightly colorful ceramics genre known as maiolica glaze painting.  Students will explore a wide color palette using maiolica stains applied over a white low-fire base glaze on six-inch terra-cotta tiles, 8” salad plates and 8” pasta bowls.

The process will begin with exploring the vocabulary of a variety of brushes to create border patterns and calligraphic brushwork and simple design strategies that complement and frame a central compositional motif.

A survey of historic maiolica examples will be introduced through a slide show, a variety of books, and sample works from my personal collection for inspiration. Students are welcome to bring their favorite brushes, but all materials will be provided.

This lecture is underwritten by a grant from the Windgate Foundation to VisArts Center for Crafts.
