Sue Tirrell Unforgettable: Commemorative Plates and Tiles

Sue Tirrell Unforgettable: Commemorative Plates and Tiles

What images, feelings, and situations will you remember most about this tumultuous past year? How would you translate complicated feelings into an object of beauty and contemplation? Join Sue Tirrell for an exploration of plate making and narrative surface design. Sue will discuss examples of historic and contemporary commemorative ceramics and why
they are important. Demonstrations will include handbuilt plate construction techniques as well as how Tirrell approaches narrative composition using pattern, symbols, and expressive color. With a materials kit option, participants will design their own plate and have the opportunity to paint, draw, and carve their own narrative designs with underglazes on a leather-hard tile.
