When: May 29th @ 11am

Ceramic Underglazing and Slip Trailing with Yesha Panchal And Speedball Art

Join skilled ceramic artist Yesha Panchal as she walks you through a few techniques and uses for Underglazes. Yesha will introduce participants to underglaze trailing – a unique ceramics decorating technique to create patterns using fine lines on your ceramic pieces. In this demo, Yesha will demonstrate the process of drawing with underglaze on ceramics. We will discuss in more depth about slip trailing tools and their varying gauge tips to produce different line weights using underglazes. For this specific demonstration, Yesha will be using melon, soft pink, teal, blue frost, and black speedball underglazes to show how you can approach painting on ceramics using underglazes. This demo will be fantastic for both ceramic artists waiting to explore more techniques and creative individuals interested in watching the ceramic decorating process! 

A Note from the Artist:

Geometric forms and vibrant colors in my work portray the coalescence between the structured urban life and the experience of bliss in nature. My work is mainly inspired by the colors in petals, stems, plants, and other elements of nature that bring our attention. Speedball underglazes are my favorites when it comes to coverage, vibrancy, and affordability.
