The curious can explore the art of glazing at an “End of Day Bowl” class Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bonifas Arts Center.
Participants will choose a pre-made bowl that Scott Leipski, instructor, created from unused clay trimmings left behind after a day of sculpting, each bowl “absolutely different,” texturized, patterned, adorned with “whimsical” features like birds and houses, and already once processed (fired), said Leipski, allowing attendees to focus on glazing.

Glazing is “as significant” to the creation process as building and sculpting, and when done well, it “deepens the story” of a sculpture in the same manner light and color can deepen and complicate stories in films, said Leipski.
Leipski will teach how to create different effects and patterns, sharing his glazing style and some of his techniques, he said, with participants free to “play” with glazes. After a final clear glazing, the bowls will be food safe, Leipski said.
Participants also are welcome to ask Leipski any questions they may have about other art subjects, he said. The class is $35 for nonmembers and $28 for members.
