Transparency is one of the most important qualities of porcelain and usually requires a prolonged, precise and very accurate processing to obtain a piece of fine beauty highlighted by the translucency of the light. This course allows you to develop two simple and immediate techniques that will facilitate and strengthen creativity to develop many projects without the use of large resources and experience in the field of porcelain.
We will use the slip porcelain without the use of molds and single-firing and the two techniques, one for objects with organic shapes and another for objects with geometric shapes and more precise.
The 14-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on Saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on Sunday.Included in the Workshop cost: 14 hours of teaching | all the necessary materials | firings | nr. 2 brunch lunch | a box with the samples of the materials used during the workshop

From Jasper to Nerikomi in porcelain in two days
One of the finest qualities of porcelain is its sensuality to the touch, plus the surface can be enriched with vibrant colors or sharp contrasts of black and white. There are ancient and complex techniques of the "Neriage"family which, in a modern way, allow you to express yourself through many aesthetic solutions, from a jewel, avessel, a sculpture, an object, or a complex installation. It will be the very intense and rich post-Argillà course,among the techniques dealt with: the Jasper, the Rainbow or Scala, the Zebra, the Nerikomi and the Mosaico with composite tiles.PROGRAMMA: - Preparation of colored porcelain bodies, recipes and percentages and how to avoid the melting or deforming pieces. - Use of color both into the body and slip porcelain, tricks. - Preparation of shapes, cuts, joints, lines, drawings and compositions for all possible ancient Asian techniques revisited in contemporary way with modern and practical use. - Agate, Jasper, Mishima, Mosaic, Rainbow, Scala, Zebra and Nerikomi techniques. - Cleaning and tricks to avoid color contamination, air bubbles, deformations or cracks. - Preparation of colored slip porcelain and use. - Conformations with net black and white avoiding contaminations of one color with another. - With the use of the mold and without, application of the techniques learned. - How to install the colored pieces inside the kiln avoiding the attachment of the pieces or accidents. - Types of firing, low and high, firing curves for pieces built by colored mix techniques. - Finishes and corrections before firing, after first firing and even after the last high temperature firing. - Recipes and possibility of restoration of broken pieces.

Per chi ama i modi naturali e vede nella ceramica le varietà espressive che questi possono dare. Porterete tre forme essiccate (non cotte) di misura massima singola cm 20 (altezza) x 10 x 10 a spessore max mm7 realizzate in argille bianche da Raku. Le superfici delle forme potranno essere levigate a pressione ma non ingobbiate. Faremo esperienza di applicazione di argille su argille, di smalti in monocottura e di fiammature con cottura a legna che con la sua casualità ci mostrerà giochi infiniti di trasparenze, neri e lustri.
Programma: applicazione sulle vostre forme secche di ingobbi del genere Terra Sigillata, sali metallici, vernici e smalti – cottura notturna a biscotto – allestimento del fuoco e inserimento delle forme – cottura a legna – estrazione delle forme a mezza e fine cottura – lezioni di tecnologia a domanda.Le forme saranno realizzate seguendo le indicazioni del docente, saranno cotte e consegnate entro i tempi del corso stesso. Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 del sabato e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica. Docente: Maestro Giovanni Cimatti

Quando ci si avvicina al mondo della ceramica spesso si incontrano le prime difficoltà già nella fase di modellazione proprio per mancanza di competenze nelle tecniche di foggiatura dei manufatti. Gli impasti ceramici e le argille possono essere lavorati in diversi modi e in questo corso di base ci proponiamo di introdurvi ad alcune delle tecniche fondamentali come il colombino, la lastra, la stampatura e il colaggio.
La scelta del tipo di argilla da impiegare ed individuare la migliore tecnica di modellazione per la produzione delle forme sarà di basilare importanza per avere successo nel portare a termine i vostri progetti ed evitare perdite di tempo e di denaro.
Il corso non è finalizzato alla realizzazione di oggetti finiti ma si limita alla produzione in libertà di esperienze costruttive, tattili e di cottura sempre sotto la guida del docente.

The suggestive technique of Jasper has an important role in the creative processes for those who want to produce objects that are pleasant to the touch, and with a beautiful and vibrant for the perception of color. A complex technique that requires only accuracy in the process and the desire to create designs using color. To make the most of the potential of this technique, the students will perform different exercises to get to know their fragility, strength and refinement applied to the jewels. The whole process and derivations can be applied beyond, in furnishing objects, sculptures, small series of utilitarian or decorative objects.Progam: - Totally practical lessons with a theoretical chapter dedicated to the artists who used ceramics to create jewels. - Preparation of colored slip and body porcelain, recipe and percentages. Creation of organic, geometric or abstract motifs directly on the body porcelain through: - Jasper decomposition methods. - Methods of construction with small tiles, use of colored slip. - How to apply on jewelry molds avoiding cracks and deformations. - Finishing and corrections after biscuit firing. - Methods of positioning of the pieces for high firing. Special features to avoid deformation and breakage. - Finishing and corrections after last firing. - Design for jewelry composition.
