Barbara first began enameling at Kulicke Starke Academy in NYC and continued her studies with notable enamelists such as Bill Helwig, Martha Banyas, Jamie Bennett, Mary Chuduck, Charity Hall, and Elizabeth Turrell through summer workshops at Penland, Arrowmont, and Haystack. In an “Enameling for Bookmaking” class at Penland, Barbara was first introduced to the artist book. She is enthused about exploring ways to combine her metalwork with this new medium.

Ceramics & Sculpture

Peeling the onion... Without all the tears! This workshop will focus on creating dynamic, layered, and interesting ceramic surfaces for both functional and sculptural vessels. We will look at building up slip and terra sigilatta surfaces and backgrounds to enhance and enliven the ceramic surface and provide dynamic, layered backgrounds for glazes to interact with. We will look at brushing slip, hakame, paper resist, brush wipes, sgraffito, champleve, slip trailing, terra sigillatas, and different resist techniques to build up layers of information and interest for further glazing to later enhance and augment our ceramic vessels. Glazing considerations will be discussed, but the bulk of the workshop will be spent discussing and exploring leather hard and bone dry applications. Ronan Peterson - $175 - Saturday, 10am-2pm, Jan. 20 & 27 Prerequisite - At least one Wheelthrowing class, and must be comfortable centering at least 2lbs of clay.

Simple Surfaces: Exploring Basic Surface Decoration Whether you have a love or hate relationship with glazing, this class will help broaden your surface decoration skills.
