Patia Davis Porcelain Slip Demo

See Patia construct her porcelain slip decorated pottery

  • 25 British pounds
  • CUP Studio

Service Description

DATE AND TIME: March 4th, 10-1 Come and see Patia Davis demo her slip decoration techniques, and see her throw and construct a teapot too! Patia is a very experienced maker, and this event would be a great opportunity for beginners and experienced potters alike to observe a professional at work; with plenty of time for questions along the way. My making in porcelain is thrown but also altered and manipulated. Taking the forms away from the wheels symmetry, by softening and creating forms that are often squared when assembled. I will demonstrate my approach to throwing with this in mind. And will assemble and complete the pieces with my tin-can trailing techniques too. Patia makes using two very different clays. Slip decorated earthenware fired to 1120 degrees centigrade, and high fired reduced porcelain. (Using apple, chestnut and yew ash). There is a connected thread between the two … pots for living and daily pleasure. The most interesting aspect about working with both materials is that each material feeds different facets of what Patia loves about clay and one informs something of the other when she is working; enriching both. Patia’s earthenware pieces often begin with the clay as the canvas – working slip wet into wet, layer upon layer of pours, drips, trails, feathering, and brush marks with intensity and speed. This joy is evident in her work the sense of being a little more out of control, freer in process has come about in part by using tin cans for trailing slip in both her earthenware and porcelain pieces. Ideas are allowed to become something else by the very nature of nature of pouring out the slip through a fine slit, the result being looked at again and thought about afresh; worked on if exciting or cast aside. DATE AND TIME: March 4th, 10-1
