In particular, we will deal with application by immersion, spraying with an airbrush and brush glazing with the aid of special vehicles that allow for better application. We will present the necessary steps to obtain effects in the coatings also with applications in several layers that will be made on clay supports, already fired, provided by the organisation.

THE NEW CREATIVE MOLDING TECHNIQUE | Simon Zsolt József

450.00

23-24-25-26 June 2023

The aim of the course is to understand the opportunities to model the forms inherent in molding errors. We will learn how to prepare a multi-part plaster molding form, which allows us to model the internal and external shapes of the final object.

The artist will make a presentation of his works, which will allow to observe and understand this special molding procedure. The second half of the screening will demonstrate the creation of a specific object from the beginning to the final stage.

Participants will start working on one of Zsolt's objects, through an individual consultation, and later, they will create a different shape, allowing learning from each other's work. From the preparation of the plaster, the finishing, sawing, sanding and assembly of the plaster form will follow until the casting (porcelain or stoneware).

Simon Zsolt József Simon Zsolt József studied at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest. He is an all-round artist, interested in ceramics, painting, theater and music. The study of movement is the basis of his work. His particular research is concentrated in the process through the molds or modules that give birth to a particular shape, not the programmed one. It uses porcelain for its quality of fragility which grants a sense of lightness, movement and refinement.

The 20-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on friday and saturday, from 9.00 to 16.00 on sunday and from 9.00 to 12.00 on monday.
