…4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 centimeters…Yes, a ten centimeter line on a bar of clay is an ideal way to test the shrinkage of a clay body. Our Open Studio for this month will be focused on all sorts of testing. Come join us and learn about making test tiles for glazes using an extruder and testing a clay body’s shrinkage, & absorption. You’ll also get to meet Bracker’s inaugural Artist-In-Residence, Zach Palasz! Zach is a recent Kansas University graduate. You can check out some of his work on display in his Senior Show. Join us Thursday, June 19th, from 4-7pm!
On the Third Thursday of every month, make plans to come spend your afternoon with us in our studio space here at Bracker’s! Stop by and try out new tools and toys, ask a question, or just enjoy the company and camaraderie. Everyone is welcome to come and create. We have a slabroller, and extruder and several wheels available, and plenty of tools. (You’re also welcome to bring in your own favorite tools.) Work made from studio clay will be bisque-fired and used for glaze of the month tests. (Please be sure to let us know if you want to be credited as the maker.)
