Extruded Cup and Slip Decoration Demonstration at Mudstone Studios

This event will feature the production and decoration of a cup by Mudstone Studios manager Jamie Rhode. She will extrude a ceramic tube from a large press and demonstrate how to hand-build it into a cup. From there, colored clay will be applied to the cup, and designs will then be carved into it using the sgraffito (“to scratch” in Italian) technique. The incising reveals the contrasting layered colors on the piece. This process is a great way to create graphic, versatile wares in all different kinds of styles!
