Zach Sierke: Exploring Wild Clay and Using Local Materials

  • Leone Cole Auditorium Jacksonville State University Jacksonville, AL 36265 USA (map)

In this workshop, Zach will take you deep into how to find, process, and work with raw clay straight from the earth. This intensive session will start with a native clay petting zoo, throwing demo, and a discussion of different qualities of native clay bodies and their uses. This will be followed by a presentation on locating and digging your own clay and a demonstration on how to make terra sigillata. This workshop is packed with information not only about clay from the region, but also the qualities of clay in general from a working, geological, and chemistry perspective.
