CAQ Raku Demonstration - Southside Art Market

Join the Ceramic Arts Queensland's raku experts at the Morningside School of Arts on Sunday 20 August, for an action-packed day that will excite everyone from children to even the most experienced raku exponent.

Kimberly Oberlin and Emma MacGregor will again be setting up early - around 8am ready for glazing and firing. CAQ board member and Raku expert,Kimberly will again be in charge of the glaze table, demonstrating how to apply glaze to the pots. Get in early to purchase your favourite pot to glaze.

These professional pots are provided by Bill Powell, master thrower and Vice President of CAQ.

Raku is the fastest way to glaze and fire ceramic work, and produce spectacular results from the sudden heating and cooling, with or without exposure to a smoking chamber. Beautiful iridescent and lustrous surfaces are possible with the option to reglaze and refire as the whole cycle takes about 40 minutes.

It’s always a thrill to see the unexpected and unique results that inevitably happen from this spontaneous form of firing and best of all you can take your unique pot home with you on the day!

If you have an interest in knowing how it’s done, or picking up some tips, or even joining the raku volunteers on for our next Raku day, then come along and join in.

Paul Davis - Ian Currie Memorial Lecture

Ian Currie 1941 - 2011  

Ian Currie was a Queensland potter who specialised in Japanese inspired glazes on his stoneware and porcelain pots. He lived and potted for over 30 years in a quiet valley in South East Queensland. He published two books on glazes; Stoneware Glazes and Revealing Glazes which have become essential handbooks for potters.

Paul Davis

Paul Davis started teaching at the Caulfield Institute of Technology (now a campus of Monash University) in 1975 after completing a Diploma of Art at RMIT, Melbourne, in 1973. Establishing the Arthurs Seat Pottery' at Red Hill, Victoria in 1978, he continued his association with Monash University until 1996, achieving the position of Head of Ceramics there and completing a Master of Arts by research in 1995 with a thesis, "Glazes related to the Japanese Tea Ceremony".

Taking up a Japan Foundation Fellowship, he then spent five years in the Hagi area of Japan, returning to Australia for three months of the year to teach and work at his Sekizan Pottery School. From 2001-2009 he was head of Sturt Pottery at Mittagong, bringing new international influences to Sturt and synthesising his Australian and Japanese experiences. He and Jacqueline Clayton are now based in Newcastle where they are producing a range of tableware through their company, (CC BY NC SA Judith Pearce.)

Anyone who has participated in one of Paul’s classes or workshops is immediately inspired by his passion for every aspect of the process employed to create objects in clay. A master thrower, hand builder, decorator, technologist and story teller Paul is a generous teacher with something to offer everyone.

De-Mystifying Terra-Sigillata with Pru Morrison

Pru Morrison

Pru Morrison’s ceramic art provokes an open-ended dialogue about everyday life in Australia.

Witty, laconic and rich with intertextual references, her work is often thematically centred on specific events, issues or historical characters. Morrison is a multidisciplinary artist who also practices etching, painting and drawing – artistic expressions that all exert some influence over her ceramics.

She makes use of a variety of moulds and hand-building techniques to create clay objects that resemble utilitarian objects, each with its own uncanny quirk. Morrison’s understated porcelain vessels often feature detailed hand-painted designs.

Her bolder forms are made by layering different coloured clay slips in the terra sigillata style before scratching through the strata to draw an image out from the clay body through to the surface. She sometimes uses this technique to incorporate engaging language into her work by hand-scratching short passages of text. Morrison’s aesthetic is characterised by brilliant colours; a tactic she employs to create visually alluring pieces that invite contemplation and conversation.

She often uses black underglaze pencil and clear underglaze to coat the interior of a piece to improve its functionality. Morrison is the recipient of a Rockhampton Ergon Energy Award and Cairns William Graham Carmen Award.

 

Terra-Sigillata

The term terra sigillata, which means ‘sealed earth’, comes from the name of a type of Roman pottery mass-produced around the first century AD. This pottery was decorated with impressed or stamped decoration, which is what the word ‘sigillata’ refers to. (Think of the kind of stamp, or ‘seal’, which would have been used to seal wax on a paper document.)

These pots were coated with the same kind of very fine slip which Greek potters had been using for hundreds of years to create their famous black and red pottery. Though many books incorrectly refer to this slip as a ‘glaze’, it was not actually a glaze but the material we now call terra sigillata.

Pru Morrison's modern terra sigillata technique uses it as a medium to carry colour. Greenware is layered with coloured slips and scraffitto as a canvas for text and, drawings and illustrations.
