Ceramic sculptors and potters, come and explore the painterly surface of underglazes, underglaze pencils and chalks to create multi-layered colorful imagery. The ceramic surface becomes your 3D canvas under the expert guidance of artist, Julia Feld.
It doesn’t matter if you make pottery or sculptural ceramics, involved with low or high fire processes, have years of studio experience or just started with clay, you will learn how to boost your ceramics with vivid color. You don’t have to know how to paint or draw.
This hands-on workshop is designed to introduce you to the painterly surface as an alternative way to traditional glazing techniques. You will practice painting on a simple plate before you move onto three-dimensional forms. If you have taken this workshop already, then Julia has more to teach you.
Bring your favorite brushes (soft ones), source images and eagerness to get bold with colors. Bring your own bisque form to paint on, or we will have a selection here if you don’t have anything to bring. (bowls, cups, anything that has enough surface for painting)
We’ll supply the rest of the materials.
Questions: email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring your lunch.
$55 for teachers, $75 for non-teachers
Materials are included, but bring our own clay tools.

About the Artist
In her work, Julia Feld combines an abstract curvilinear sculptural ceramic form with surreal, realistically rendered narrative painting. She creates an illusion of dramatically changing transformation between realities. In her work, the three-dimensional world formed by painting coexists with the three-dimensionality of the object. She creates an impression of interchangeability between flat image and three-dimensional form.
Julia’s sculptures are vessels that harbor the internal world of a person. Her work is a quest for a three-dimensional space that can hold the imaginary world, world of a broken and twisted perspective. A world remembered or conjured from the past, a world that seamlessly transitions from one dimensionality to another--a world of a dream.
Julia Feld received her BFA in Spatial Arts from San Jose State University, California and MFA in Visual Arts-Ceramic Sculpture from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio. Currently she teaches at De Anza College, Cupertino and Gavilan College, Gilroy. For the past nine years she has been an active member of the ceramic art community.
She has developed a highly personal style that incorporates narrative painting and ceramic sculpture in one work of art. She paints on clay with underglazes and creates an illusion of interchangeable reality. In her work she explores psychological and emotional issues of a deep personal nature. Her work has been shown internationally and nationally at different shows and galleries and juried into numerous ceramic competitions where she has received prizes and awards.
