What the heck is Pots and Prints?
That was the question posed to the assistant professor of the Howard College art department.
“It's ceramics and making prints on a special kind of paper,” Assistant Art Professor Stacy Slaten commented. However, this led to the query of how a ceramic piece could be made in a one-day workshop. Traditionally, a ceramic piece can take weeks to produce. “It is a type of firing call raku,” said Slaten and explained that In raku firing, the glaze firing times for raku ware are short: an hour or two as opposed to up to 16 hours for high-temperature stoneware firings.
This free workshop is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the Howard College Hall Center for the Arts and is being sponsored by the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.
