IL RAKU DOLCE | Giovanni Cimatti

15-16 May 2021

Il Raku Dolce è un'idea che Giovanni Cimatti ha avuto alla fine degli anni 90' e che si distingue dal Raku cosiddetto per la ridotta fumigazione e l'impiego di argille senza chamotte.

Queste diversità consentono un maggior ordine e pulizia del sistema Raku: Si estraggono le forme ad una temperatura più bassa, si riduce al minimo il fumo prodotto e le forme non devono essere quasi mai pulite. Anche le stesse forme possono avere un'ottima finitura delle superfici ed avere un'integrità molto elevata.

A tutto questo si associa la bella ricerca che può essere fatta di argille che trattate forniscono ingobbi e patine del genere Terre sigillate aretine.

Infine il fondamentale aspetto molto contemporaneo, per il rispetto ambientale, che prevede la possibilità di eseguire le forme a Raku Dolce con ingobbi e smalti applicati su terra secca in una sola cottura (monocottura). Giovanni Cimatti porterà in uso al corso il personale forno a gas e tratterà degli aspetti legati alle cotture Raku in generale.

Durante il corso verranno fatte esperienze di applicazione di una formula già sviluppata che sarà possibile colorare e applicare su supporti semplici che verranno realizzati la mattina del sabato e che essiccheranno durante la pausa pranzo.

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.

Compreso nel corso:

14 ore di docenza | i materiali necessari allo svolgimento del corso | le cotture | nr. 2 pasti brunch (colazione e pranzo) | una scatola omaggio (con campionatura dei materiali utilizzati durante il corso)
