here to see images of the works from the program
The work of Antal András uses a variety of direct printing techniques
into soft clay. His process involves drawing and sketching from source
material, usually landscape in origin, transferring the drawn image to
lino blocks and impressing the surface of his work with the image. The
result is then painted using several glazes before raku firing. The plates
and sculptures he produces using this technique are fine and precise,
with the etched images creating a drawn filigree of intricate lines.
Steve Mattison works in both Raku and
Soda glaze techniques, making brightly coloured and laminated vessels
and figurative sculpture. He is a leading expert in raku techniques and
live flame firings. In recent years he has also been making graphic images
using photography and computer imaging software to created original works
suitable for paper or ceramic.
