Majolica Cone 6 Workshop with Dori Bolen
Explore the wonderful world of Majolica; in this workshop (Day One) we will begin by creating a Victorian hand built pitcher replicating and honoring the design and workmanship of George Jones and Sons . We will add layers of clay to create patterns of flowers, twisted branches and leaves to achieve that charm of the Victorian era. (Day Two) We continue on by dipping our bisque pieces into a white Majolica cone 6 glaze and then decorate each individual pattern pieces and background with bright overglazes.
The pitcher in the image above was made in the 1800's and is family owned. It has always inspired me to make and glaze beautiful decor to cherish forever.
