In this two day demonstration course you will have the chance to gain an insight into the processes associated with slip casting. The course will cover mold-making process as well as slip casting bone china and many different surface decorating methods.
Sasha has over 30 years experience in the world of bone china and porcelain having studied in two centres of excellence , namely Stoke on Trent and Limoges.
She has taken elements of this industry and adapted them to a studio environment with her own production which includes bespoke vases, bowls, lighting and tea ware. Sasha has concentrated on perfecting the craft-based skills which enhance the inherent qualities of bone china and her carefully produced distinctive work embraces and reflects contemporary taste and lifestyle. Each piece is individually made using industrial processes that Sasha has personally developed.
Sasha’s hallmark style, a distinctive combination of pure white slip cast bone china, treated with unique decorating techniques and finished in a carefully chosen palette of muted, subtle colours, has made her work highly sought after by private collectors, museums and contemporary art galleries worldwide. These include CLAY, Museum of Ceramic Art, Denmark, The Grainer Collection , Mint Museum of Craft and Design, Charlotte, N. Carolina, USA and National Museum of Scotland , Edinburgh.
