Lesley will demonstrate her stretched slab techniques and how she forms them into sculptural objects and vessels. Lesley will demonstrate with paper clay and show the unique possibilities it has to offer as a clay body but will then focus on stoneware clay, to show her process of hand building, painterly slip applications and printing techniques.
The emphasis of this workshop will be to explore the natural relationship between surface and form through experimentation. This will lead to a uniquely personal journey and trigger ideas. The endless possibilities of combinations allow each individual to transfer their explorations into either functional or sculptural forms.
