MUSIC AND MOVEMENT OF PORCELAIN | Edna Oliver
12-13-14 November 2021
This course offers to the audience, already in possession of knowledge about ceramics, to propose a new way of thinking about the ceramic process.
Understand the possibilities of incorporating the fire as a tool. During these 3 days, the participants will learn this new instrument by exploring it and taking advantage of the qualities of shrinkage and sound of porcelain, through multiple exercises.
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 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.
The 20-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on friday and saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on sunday.
