INTRODUCTORY HAND-BUILDING/MISHIMA CERAMICS CLASS TAUGHT BY MOLLY BERNSTEIN. THIS WORKSHOP IS OFFERED IN TWO DAY BLOCKS FROM 6:30-8:30PM STARTING MONDAY, JANUARY 7TH.

MISHIMA IS A SIMPLE JAPANESE INLAY TECHNIQUE THAT INVOLVES CARVING DIRECTLY INTO A WAXED CLAY SURFACE AND THEN BRUSHING STAIN INTO THE EXPOSED CLAY. THE PHOTOS ON THIS PAGE ARE EXAMPLES OF THIS PROCESS, MISHIMA. MOLLY LEARNED THIS TECHNIQUE WHILE STUDYING IN TOKONAME, JAPAN IN 2012. DURING THE TWO-DAY CLASS, WE WILL SLAB-BUILD A PLANTER OR PLATES OUT OF WHITE STONEWARE CLAY AND ON THE SECOND NIGHT WE WILL DECORATE THE WORK USING THE MISHIMA TECHNIQUE. YOU CAN EXPERIMENT WITH CARVING DRAWINGS OR PATTERNS INTO THE SURFACE OF YOUR WORK AND USE DIFFERENT COLORED STAINS TO FILL IN THE DESIGN. MOLLY WILL GLAZE THE WORK WITH A CLEAR GLOSS TO MAKE THE INLAID DESIGN POP!

THE PIECES WILL TAKE ABOUT 7 - 10 DAYS TO DRY AND THEN GO THROUGH THE FIRING + GLAZING PROCESS. THE WORK WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PICK UP AT GIVENS CIRCLE ABOUT TWO WEEKS AFTER COMPLETING YOUR CLASS(ES). ALL MATERIALS, TOOLS AND FIRINGS ARE INCLUDED IN THE COST OF THE WORKSHOP. ALL MATERIALS ARE NON-TOXIC AND FINISHED PIECES ARE DISHWASHER FRIENDLY.
