Pinch Pot Bird Demo with Celia Talbott
Ladies Weekend Event
Saturday, November 23rd
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
FREE / NO REGISTRATION
Celia will demonstrate how to make pinch pot birds. She will show you the forming of the basic pinch pot shape, and the method of sealing the top edge to make a hollow form. She will continue with how a small coil can suggest the wing shape, a wisp of clay forms the tail, and with a little clay you have the head and beak. From there you’ll learn how to finish the bird including adding Terra Sigillata ( a fine clay slip), then polishing or burnishing. You will see how magical this process is. She will have images of a very simple kiln where the pieces are sawdust fired giving each one unique and random smoke patterns.
Girls Adventure! -Celia plans to have small dry clay tiles, and Terra-Sig for you to try your hand at polishing and see how amazing it is. Sip & Sig
