Trompe L'oeil Ceramics with Tim Kowalczyk: Artist in Residence Workshop
Two-day class: Monday and Wednesday, February 12 and 14. 6 - 9:00 PM

Tim Kowalczyk will demonstrate his unique construction process of using paper clay to form layers of his signature trompe l’oeil cardboard, then forming those layers into different objects such as plates, bowls, cups and mugs. He will show how to make the paper clay body he uses in his studio practice and will demonstrate the some of the printmaking and application process for the imagery that he applies to the outside of his clay objects. Participants will be able to try out these techniques, and their finished projects will be fired and returned to them.
