Liquid porcelain workshop

Looking for new ideas for working liquid porcelain in a very creative way without using molds? Liquid porcelain is always very beautiful but it’s necessary to use molds, and complex slip casting techniques are needed, also, opening the molds avoiding breakage and deformation of the pieces and usually, it limit creativity.

So that only manual construction can be implemented; this complete and complex course brings together various unconventional techniques using different types of liquid porcelain for the construction of sculptures and both decorative and utilitarian objects in small series.

We would face all the possible construction means without the use of molds, the correct drying, deformations, use of color, the possibility of creating small glazed series, corrections in the event of breakage and correct firing.

LARGE-SCALE SCULPTURE | Martin McWilliam

29-30 September and 01-02-03 October 2021

This course offers the opportunity to build large-scale vases or sculptures. These could be figurative, abstract or very classic. A large and complete scale of construction techniques will be made available. Participants will learn how to handle large clay slabs, coils, work starting from the solid block and combining all these procedures. The possibilities of finishing will be explored: different media of scraping, filing, beating, brushing, polishing, application of slips or engobes. We will discuss ways to add color with slips, oxides and various firing possibilities and the use of cold glaze. We will start from the demonstration and illustration of large-scale constructions. And later, the participants will be asked to bring a model or a sketch of an individual project and the teacher will evaluate and assist during the construction process. The strong point of this course lies in conveying an open use of clay.
