This month Ceramics Arts Daily Presents will release the DVD, Layers of Color: Exploring Form and Surface Pattern in Slip-cast Pottery by LSU alum Andrew Gilliatt. Since graduating in 2011, Gilliatt’s signature methods for forming slip-cast pottery and for applying whimsical decals have created a buzz in the ceramics world, resulting in invitations to present his work across the United States at universities and at ceramics symposia. He is currently a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana.
While at LSU, Gilliatt wrote an article for Pottery Making Illustrated detailing every step of his process. The wide public interest for this article inspired Ceramics Arts Daily to contact Andrew about expanding those processes more fully within a DVD. Says Gilliatt, “The DVD covers every aspect of how I make my pots – everything from the initial prototype process, to mixing slips, applying glazes, and printing decals.” Gilliatt continues, “I had to write a script but I didn’t get to wear makeup.”
