We will explore surface design using slips, under glazes and glazes and patterns.  Through these methods we will incorporate wax resist, tape resist, plastic resist, sgraffito, slip and glaze trailing. Six hand-built and twenty wheel-thrown works are required, with reviews taking place during week five and week ten. The default grade option for this class is Credit/No Credit.
