Spring II: Wed 6-8:30pm 6/29/22-8/3/22  Inst. Liz Lewandowski

Level: Intermediate (Prerequisite: You must have taken a beginning hand-building class)

Great class for those with hand building experience, Liz will help you learn to push your work further. Create multiples and investigate new ideas. Try various surface techniques like carving, mishima, wax resist, and slip application. Embed found objects or use stamps for texture. Learn to create your own stamps.  Put a creative twist on traditional techniques like coiling with extra large or small coils and flat coils. Create sculptural pieces using the extruder.  Layer slabs to create a relief image or learn to make 3D forms for a unique piece of wall art. Be sure to bring your ideas!

staff

  • Liz Lewandowski
    Liz has a BA from Concordia College, WI. She is an extremely talented hand-builder and sculptor. She has taught classes for CCC since 2014, many of her own unique design. Liz is also the head of glaze mixing and kiln operation.  Thanks to her we have 21 hand-mixed glazes, 8 slips and 4 oxide washes. In addition she keeps 3 kilns firing up to 3 times per week, all while keeping a wicked sense of humor. “I’m an Illustrator by trade but have found a special place in my heart for ceramics. I enjoy making 3d pieces of art and then incorporating drawings and designs in the the surface. I specialize in dragons, monsters and all things nightmarish!” Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lsquaredstudio/?hl=en
