Meet Rumi Koshino, Guest Workshop Artist

Posted on July 28, 2015

Creativity Explored is pleased to introduce Guest Workshop Artist, Rumi KoshinoGuest Artist Workshops are four to twelve-week project-based artmaking sessions taught by professional artists that are scheduled two days per week. These projects provide studio artists the opportunity to work with artists from around the world and experiment with a wide variety of media and new techniques.

Working in the cearmics department of our main studio (July 13 through August 4, 2015), Koshino is teaching the sgraffito technique. In sgraffito technique, the surface of clay is scratched to create linear drawings. Working with red clay as the base, a white slip is applied. Once the slip is semi-dry, artists use tools to scratch the surface revealing the red clay beneath. Also working with white clay as a base, a black slip is applied. When scratched, white clay lines appear. 

After volunteeering in the CE studio one day a week for the past year, Koshino noticed that the CE ceramic artists work with the same clay and glossy glaze. Through her guest artist workshop, Koshino wanted to introduce a new techqniue and material. Using the sgraffito technique, studio artists are exploring the difference between 2D and 3D drawing. Participating artists include: Charles Cruz, Paul Gee, Walter Kresnik, Selene Perez, and Emma Reyes.
