HOTA and Artisan combine to offer a special ArtLab workshop with renowned ceramic artist, Pru Morrison.

In this workshop Pru will take you through her incredible terra sigillata techniques, layering colour on pottery. This technique, used in well-known ancient Greek and Roman pottery, achieves a high gloss stain without a glaze.

Morrison puts her own twist on the historical terra sigillata technique. She layers colours and scraffitto (scratching back) to her clay pieces to create her signature, witty drawings and text.

Join renowned ceramic artist Pru Morrison and learn her incredible terra sigillata techniques, layering colour on pottery. This technique, used in well-known ancient Greek and Roman pottery achieves a high gloss stain without a glaze.

About Pru Morrison:
Pru Morrison’s ceramic art provokes an open-ended dialogue about everyday life in Australia. Morrison is a multidisciplinary artist who practices etching, painting and drawing—artistic expressions that all exert some influence over her ceramics. Her pieces are made by layering different coloured clay slips in the terra sigillata style before scratching through the strata to create an image on the surface of the clay body. Her ceramic work The Johnnies is part of the Gallery at HOTA Collection.
