II Edition Ceramic&Colours Award

Faenza 2018

“Ceramic with melted glass, crystalline poems”

The Faenza Art Ceramic Center announces the second edition of the “Ceramic&Colours Award”, a ceramic competition with the aim of promoting and enhancing the research in the field of vitreous ceramic coatings for the finishing of ceramic objects.

For 2018 edition the “ceramic with melted glass” effect has been selected.

This technique, that can be used both with high and low temperatures, consists in the application of a thick transparent frit that during the firing melts and floods an area with containing edges, resulting in a thick coat of transparent glass.

This technique can be developed also through a wide range of applications including the use of engobes, colours, glazes, coloured frits, glasses and metals.

A well-known example of the opportunities offered by the use of thick frits is certainly Guerrino Tramonti, who in the 60s has become one of the main exponent of this technique.
