Workshop: Painted Tomte Mugs

Decorate your own mugs with a tomte, the charming character from Swedish folk lore. With the assistance of ceramicists Ingrid Sundstrom and Sue Flanders, students will use colorful underglazes to paint a tomte (using a provided pattern or another design of their choice) onto two bisque ware mugs prepared by potter Sue Flanders. At the end of class, the students will coat the mugs with a clear glaze. Sue will fire the mugs after class and return them to ASI for pick up about a week later. Suitable for ages 13+.
