Agnes Husz – Make a wave shape platter with beautiful colored texture on it
I am Agnes Husz; ceramic artist living in Japan.
When you see my works, it is not surprising to feel a kind of Japanese atmosphere.
All my works are hand build from long flat clay strips, what I use to call “obi”, that means the belt of the Japanese Kimono. This gives the main characteristic to my works.
I make platters, bowls, sculptural forms or even large object in the same way.
When at the first time I stretched out the clay strip by hand, I was fascinated by the natural answer of the clay. I got a long, thin, but strong and flexible clay belt. It happened 30 years ago when I rolled on my first spiral object. This was the start to develop a new way of making, and now I am going to share this knowledge with you.
Probably it sounds strange, but I always start the work with the color. Therefore, the color, the embossed surface appears already on the form, naturally decorating the ready piece, as an integral part of the finished object.
In my workshop I will demonstrate for you every important detail.
I will teach you how to make a wavy shape platter, based on this design.
Come and enjoy my course and be inspired!
