Clay, perhaps more than any other medium, offers a surface that is versatile, challenging, and remarkable in many ways. Using underglaze, stains, and glazing techniques ceramic artists ‘paint’ the surface of their forms — functional and sculptural ­— with abstract and realistic imagery. Painted surfaces might be decorative or a narrative bringing a story to the form. With the Kiln Club.
