Terra Sigillata was used in Roman times to seal and color pottery and clay work.  
The recipe is made almost entirely of clay and was born in ancient Greece, hence its name Terra Sigillata (Sealed earth)
Today the method is used to obtain a semi-shiny surface for pottery and clay works without using ceramic glaze. 
Terra Sigillata is applied very thinly and leaves a unique finish while perfectly preserving the texture and shape of the final clay work.  

Throughout this class, you will gain thorough knowledge and insight into wheel throwing and its many applications. And thereby take the first step into understanding the world of glazes and colors. You will learn about the various stages of the transformation from soft clay to finished product and the opportunities for shaping the material within these stages. The classes will include techniques such as centering, hand throwing on the pottery wheel, trimming, and glazing. You will also get an introduction to terra sigillata and make your own batch which you will use to decorate your final pieces.

On the first day, you will start making your own terra sigillata. This will then cure for the following days and be ready for you to apply to your own thrown pieces on the last day of the workshop. After preparing the terra sigillata, you will be introduced to the basic techniques on the wheel. We will focus on throwing simple shapes and trimming them in the following days. In the final class, you will apply the terra sigillata to your finished pieces... The pieces will be fired and ready to pick up 1-2 weeks after. 

  • Day one, Making your own terra sigillata // Centering and throwing a basic cylinder.

  • Day two, Throwing basic cylinder and trimming

  • Day three, Throwing your own designs

  • Day four, Trimming your pieces and applying the terra sigillata
