Richard Roth’s bio:
Richard Roth celebrates almost fifty years of experience as a studio potter and ceramic arts instructor. He
is known for scraffito designs in both porcelain and stoneware clay which is a technique of brushing
colored liquid clay slip over leather hard clay. Designs are then transferred from patterns, sketched
directly on the surface, hand carved, and backgrounds carved away. He also adds colored slip designs by
slip trailing techniques. His work has been included in numerous west coast exhibitions and galleries.
His workshop will give students demonstrations of throwing, altering, trimming, tool making and
decorating techniques as well as opportunities for students to practice these techniques with
individualized guidance. Students are encouraged to bring a sketchbook and leather hard forms to work
on at the workshop.
