DECORATION WITH GOLD, LUSTRES AND COLOURS | Vilma Bosi
04-05 May 2024
Learn how to work with precious and third-fire colours, easy application, decoration and firing of ceramics.
Third-firing decoration with gold, lustres and colours is a fascinating art that if well managed can be much less expensive than expected. Course participants will learn a correct approach to the technique so as not to waste time and resources. The course will begin with the knowledge of precious metals (gold and lustres) and their peculiarities, and will then move on to the preparation of the objects to be decorated, up to their application through personal decoration exercises. The course will continue with third-firing colours, and the various steps necessary to personalise already glazed objects with decorations (fillets, lettering, etc.) and backgrounds will be explored.
In 1978 she 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.
