In questo corso vogliamo introdurvi alla smaltatura dei manufatti ceramici fornendo alcune competenze specifiche di base.

In particolare tratteremo l’applicazione per immersione, per spruzzatura con aerografo e la smaltatura a pennello con l'ausilio di particolari veicoli che consentono una migliore applicazione. Verranno presentati i passaggi necessari per ottenere effetti nei rivestimenti anche con applicazioni in più strati che saranno realizzati su supporti in argilla, già cotti, forniti dall'organizzazione: terracotta, terraglia tenera, terracotta di argilla da gres e semirefrattaria da Raku.

Ed infine saranno affrontati anche i difetti che si riscontrano nella smaltatura e a questo proposito è possibile portare eventuali lavori personali finiti sulle cui problematiche sarà possibile svolgere una interessante lezione.

LA SINTERRACOTTA | Giovanni Cimatti

30-31 March 2019

320.00
Monocottura con gres a partire da 1050 gradi

Una buona ceramica si distingue non solo per come è rivestita e la sua intrinseca arte ma sopratutto per il suo corpo che è forte e compatto quando è realizzata in gres. Oggi è possibile utilizzare un innovativo gres bianco, anche senza raggiungere la faticosa e costosa alta temperatura, ed avere la sinterizzazione di questa argilla in tutti i tipi di forni per ceramica.

Durante il corso faremo anche esperienza di come sia possibile ridurre ulteriormente i costi facendo una cottura unica di argilla e smalti che viene infatti definita monocottura. Useremo un'argilla plastica che rende facile modellare qualsiasi tipo di forma e particolari medium per l'applicazione a pennello di rivestimenti che saranno campiti anche con l'impiego di maschere adesive. Sara possibile infine anche applicare, in seconda cottura a 900 gradi, un simpatico e innovativo smalto oro.

Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 e termina alle ore 17:00 del sabato e inizia alle ore 9:00 e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica.

Liquid porcelain without use of the mold and in sigle firing

Transparency is one of the most important qualities of porcelain and usually requires a prolonged, precise and very accurate processing to obtain a piece of fine beauty highlighted by the translucency of the light. This course allows you to develop two simple and immediate techniques that will facilitate and strengthen creativity to develop many projects without the use of large resources and experience in the field of porcelain.

We will use the slip porcelain without the use of molds and single-firing and the two techniques, one for objects with organic shapes and another for objects with geometric shapes and more precise.

From Jasper to Nerikomi

One of the finest qualities of porcelain is its sensuality to the touch, plus the surface can be enriched with vibrant colors or sharp contrasts of black and white. There are ancient and complex techniques of the "Neriage" family which, with a modern twist, allow to express, through many aesthetic solutions, from a jewel, a vase, a sculpture, an object, to a complex installation. Among the constructive techniques of colored body porcelain, by hand and with mold will be the contemporary revisiting of: L'Agata, Jasper, Zebra, Nerikomi, Mosaico with composite tiles and Mishima.

To take full advantage of the potential of these techniques, all the possible exercises will be carried out to get to know their strength and refinement. In addition, the realization of all the techniques will be followed by the tricks to avoid problems, breakages or deformations, reaching the maximum of beauty in the colors.

The 20-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on Friday and Saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on Sunday.
