Upcoming: Ceramic Mosaics Workshop November 19, 2009Posted by claralieu in Applied Arts, ceramics.

The workshop will be led by Kate Oggel, a ceramicist who currently lives and works in Rhode Island. Oggel has a wonderful technique for creating handmade mosaics: she rolls out huge slabs of ceramic clay and scores them to create the shapes of the mosaics. The scored slabs of clay are then glazed with many different colors and then fired in a kiln. When the slabs of clay come out of the kiln, the fired clay is easily broken off into neatly cut mosaics. The results are beautiful and unique. Below are student examples of mosaic designs using Oggel’s technique.
