Linda Blossom is a self taught ceramics artist from Ithaca, NY. In this
action packed two-day workshop Linda will introduce you to the use of
paper clay in tile work and large architectural pieces. Linda has been
using paper clay exclusively for the past six years in all of her pieces.
The properties of paper clay allows a single artist to work large, thin and
light. As a group we will work together on a window or door surround.

Linda studied with Peter King in 1992. She then went on to assist him in
the production, organization and writing of "Architectural Ceramics for the
Studio Potter".

Linda will share her vast experience about architectural ceramics through
demonstrations and discussions.

Topics Include:
clay bodies for tiles
paper clay
making and drying tiles
sinks: plumbing, faucets and overflow considerations
counter tops
door and window surrounds
making tile-topped tables with extruded legs

bat systems
single firing
