Art Clay Tutorial with Lynne Glazzard

Marion Edwards

First of all I would like to thank Lynne so much for stepping in at the last minute to run her tutorial as Jane Short had to cancel due to illness.

Lynne started off the day by showing us the basics of working with metal clay and then went on to demonstrate some techniques that she has developed. Firstly she textured the clay by drawing firmly onto watercolour paper to create an impression that can be transferred to the wet clay when it is rolled. Secondly, Lynne demonstrated her technique for creating cells in the clay to produce a cloisonné effect. For this she drew firmly into Styrofoam to create quite a deep impression. The lines drawn would form the enclosures for the cells.
