By the end of this course, the participants will be able to use these porcelain skills to create sound and dynamic sculptures inspired by this particular style of Edna Oliver.

Edna Oliver Edna Oliver is a ceramic sculptress, who lives and works in Israel, and explores the interaction between art and people through ceramic sculpturing. Known for her work on dynamic ceramic sculptures, she developed processes that utilize the physical property of shrinkage during firing to create sculptures with potential movement and dynamics. Thus, her porcelain sculptures, which are based on joints-like connections, allow movement, and creates sounds, leading to playfulness in the viewer.

CREATIVE MOLDING TECHNIQUE | Simon Zsolt József

26-27-28-29 November 2021

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 floral 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 porcelain casting.

Simon Zsolt József Simon Zsolt József studied at the Budapest University of Art and Design. 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.
