Do you have a wonderful image that would look fabulous on a ceramic vessel?  Lisa Gauker can guide you through the process of transferring a photo or text onto clay.

Photo Lithography is a simple way to transfer laser printed/xeroxed images onto clay surfaces.

Students need to bring:

  1. Laser printed or xerox copied images on regular bond paper (not photo printing paper and not ink jet prints).
