Service Description

Intermediate level class You are considered to be intermediate when you can center and make a cylinder on your own, if you are unsure if you can do this class feel free to ask Hannah A Little Background on Sprig Molds Wedgwood Jasperware from England is a well-known example of sprig-decorated ware. While Wedgwood’s patterns are very delicate and intricate, simple sprig molds can be made using almost any object or hand-modeled relief that does not have undercuts. (Undercut-common flaw in plaster or bisque molds, where the clay or casting catches and will not pull free without breaking or distorting). Historically, sprigs were removed from the sprig molds then applied to the pot. You can also press the sprig onto the pot while it is still in the mold, which can either be a gentle press or a deep one that changes the contour of the pot. Doing this requires an interesting shape for the whole sprig mold. - Judi Munn In this Class, we will learn, How to use and make sprig molds, use the mold you have made, and how to glaze them Dates for these Classes are June 26th. July 3rd, 10th, 6-9pm Each class is 3 hours, you don't have to stay that late but since it's a new and technical I want to give people enough time to give it a good go if it doesn't go well the first time
