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.
– 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.

Transparency is one of the most important qualities of porcelain and usually, requires a prolonged, precise and very accurate processing to obtain a fine beauty piece highlighted by the translucenty. 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 techniques. We will use slip porcelain without the use of molds and with a single-firing.PROGRAM: Totally practical lessons, preparation of the material and basic forms. Use of slip porcelain and construction with two totally different techniques. Surface treatment, controlled drying and finishing. Methods to avoid deformation and breakage during the process and all the special features of the specific firing for this technique. Recover broken complex variations of the techniques and the surface with the use of color introduced into the slip the porcelain. Production of pieces to project in small series for use or decoration. pieces or cracks with specific recipe. Finally, more co.

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.
14 ore di docenza | i materiali necessari allo svolgimento del corso | le cotture | nr. 2 pasti brunch (colazione e pranzo) | una scatola omaggio (con campionatura dei materiali utilizzati durante il corso)Costo: 250.00€ Docente: Vilma Bosi Scarica il modulo d'iscrizione in formato pdf Scarica il programma in formato pdf

Fare ceramica è una delle arti più affascinanti, ma occorre avere ben chiare alcune regole e metodologie perchè l’autodidattica è un approccio possibile, ma si può perdere tempo e danaro.
La scelta del tipo di argilla da impiegare nella produzione delle forme è di basilareimportanza e da questa dipendono tutte le altre come la foggiatura, gli smalti e la temperatura ottimale di cottura. Si può scegliere a monte quale metodologia impiegare, ma questo non toglie che la conoscenza delle argille e quindi il loro carattere è assolutamente fondamentale.
Durante il corso avrete l’opportunità di toccare una vasta gamma di argille da cui poter far discendere le vostre scelte future. Il corso si limita quindi alla produzione in libertà di esperienze costruttive, tattili e di cottura sempre sotto la guida del docente.
PROGRAMMA: esercizi personali con vari tipi di argilla con e senza inerti sia per bassa che alta temperatura a colombino, lastra e a stampo – finiture possibili durante le varie fasi di asciugatura – ritiri e plasticità – la deformazione delle forme e il suo controllo – Cottura di alcune esperienze a bassa ad alta temperatura. Lezioni di tecnologia ceramica -dimostrazione di foggiatura a colaggio.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
