Clay Monoprinting Czashka Ross

Back to Previous

Clay monoprinting is a fluid and freeing medium. Learn how to work on a raw clay slab with artist quality pigments to create imagery that is hand printed onto a non-woven synthetic substrate. Using many techniques such as painting, drawing, cut outs, inversion, reliefs and more, imagery will be pulled from the original slab. As we print and continue to build up layers of color and imagery the possibilities of creating a series of related mono-prints will allow you to explore printmaking. Expect to create multiple finished pieces and gain the ability to continue clay monoprinting at home. Beginner and Beyond

Czashka Ross has been an artist for over 45 years. She was fortunate to learn from Mitch Lyons, the master originator of this beautiful low-tech method of printmaking. She has been working with clay mono-printing for years developing wonderful methods to create effects. Born in Canada, she has lived in the United States since earning a Master’s of Fine Arts Degree from The Cranbrook Academy of Art. In between the two years at Cranbrook, she taught for a year at Purdue University and received a National Endowment for the Arts Apprenticeship Grant to work in at Twinrocker Handmade Paper Mill in Brookston, Indiana. After Cranbrook, Czashka pursued a post-graduate fellowship to research traditional western-style hand papermaking in 5 different European countries while living in France for a year. Since the 1990’s, she has worked extensively at Peters Valley in various studios continuing her practice and later began working figuratively and formally in her artwork. Czashka is a mixed media artist who has taught and exhibited work in Europe, Canada, Japan, and the United States.
