Decorative Surfaces: Mocha Diffusion
Date: April 29, 2017 (Saturday)
Time: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Instructor: Elizabeth Burtt
Fee: $20 plus HST (Members) | Fee: $23.00 plus HST (Non Members)

Students will explore the decorative technique of mocha diffusion on leather hard pots. Mocha diffusion is and early 19 century English decorative technique in which ceramic colourants are suspended in an acidic solution and applied to wet slip. The resulting patterns end up looking very fern or tree like.

Students should arrive with a selection of leather hard pots, and some flat tiles already made. We will be working with cone six slips and a variety of colourants and acidic mediums.

Originally from Fredericton, Elizabeth studied pottery and textiles at the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design. After many years in the Arts Administration field and working at her art part-time, Elizabeth moved to Cape Breton in 2008 and began to work full-time as a potter. Elizabeth uses all methods and techniques in working with clay-thrown, slab and slip cast, even making her own molds. Elizabeth’s work can be found in private collections in Canada, USA, and abroad.
