CERAMIC MAZE: THE GLAZES | Vilma Bosi
16-17 March 2024
Learn how to work with glazes, easy application, decoration and firing of ceramics.
How much water should be added when preparing the glaze? How should you proceed to make a good application? In this course we want to introduce you to glazing ceramic artefacts by providing some basic specific skills. We will start with the knowledge of the products (Glazes, Transparent glazes, Colours, etc.) and their peculiarities, we will begin with how to proceed in their preparation and we will end with the opportunity to try out the main glazing techniques and a guide to ceramic firing. 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.
In 1978 he began his work as a ceramist in Antonietta Mazzotti’s workshop where he became passionate and specialised in the decoration of ceramic artefacts. During her career, she collaborated with the Diva ceramics industry where she was in charge of the hand-decorated department and laboratory. Over time, her specialisation became the third fire (mainly gold and precious) thanks to which she collaborated with various artists and craftsmen in Italy. Among the most important are: La bottega Gatti, Fos Ceramiche, Padovani Ceramiche, Laboratorio Pesaro, Coralla Maiuri and Ceramic & Colours. In 2011, she was hired by Ceramic & Colours as laboratory manager, a role she still holds today. Since 2018 she has been teaching at the Faenza Art Ceramic Center.
