Workshop: Relief Carving Porcelain with Janel Jacobson
Experience Level: Some introductory experience reccomended
Saturday March 11, 10am-4pm
The Paramount Center for the Arts is honored to welcome master ceramic artist Janel Jacobson for an exciting day focused on the fine art of relief carving porcelain. Highlighting experiences from five amazing decades of ceramic exploration, Jacobson will walk us through techniques ranging from highly detailed and strikingly realistic carving to fun and whimsical designs. Demonstrations will include an overview of working with the fine particles of porcelain clay, throwing a simple lidded box, a walkthrough of her planning process, shallow relief carving to form layered multi-dimensional imagery, defining foreground, mid-ground, and background, and much more!
Please visit Janel’s website to preview a variety of her beautiful works, which are regularly found both at her Studio Storeroom, the always exciting annual St. Croix Pottery Tour, and of course at the workshop! To learn more of her background in relief carving you can also visit her small sculpture website.
