Tom Coleman Workshop: Brush Decoration! 2/17 (Video)
Brushwork: Decorating with Glazes, Oxides and Washes & Over Glaze.
In this workshop Tom knocked it out of the park with classic Tom Coleman decoration details. Collectors search high and low for Coleman's Cherry Blossom design. Tom shares it with us in this video.
Details: Tom composes all layers of glaze when decorating and shows us a variety of application techniques. Dipping, spraying, and layering with brushwork: oxides, washes, and more. He's taking his time, composing and creating while we film.
This Workshop includes two hours of Tom Coleman being "Tom" with all of his knowledge, humor, and insights about life. If you've ever taken a workshop with Tom Coleman- you know.
Every one of these Workshops is inspiring. Our hope is these moments with Tom and Elaine Coleman encourage you to investigate further into the value of what we're all doing as potters. How amazing it is that our generations have been able to bring art and commerce together to raise families. This is something we hope will be possible again someday.
It's up to all of us to keep the art of clay alive for generations to come. Please teach pottery and continue the love of clay.
