Using wire with ceramics

Using wire with ceramics

About the Course

You will experiment with and create small or medium objects and fire them inside a saggar.
Amongst the materials we will use are stainless steel, nichrome wire, stoneware, paper clays, nails and cutlery, with firings at low and high temperature.

We will look at contemporary makers that combine these materials and explore some of the possible outcomes. The use of Egyptian Paste as a bonding element at the earthenware range will be covered.

This course will not cover the glazing of work.
