Ceramic Workshops for Seniors introduce hand building techniques to create either functional or sculptural projects. Marilyn is known for her humorous creatures, Anne created a Flamenco Dancer and Robert made two lifelike miniatures. Each project is unique, and speaks to the aesthetics of the individual senior artist. Learning new fabrication techniques is only one facet. Painting and developing the surface detail is done with commercial underglaze colors, added after the bisque firing, a second firing is for the transparent glaze coat which seals the clay surface.
