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.
Included in the Workshop cost:
20 hours of teaching | all the necessary materials | firings | nr. 3 brunch lunch | a box with the samples of the materials used during the workshop

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.

PORCELAIN is a material that requires a prolonged, precise and very accurate processing to obtain pieces of exquisite beauty. The different techniques faced with this material allow us to highlight two important qualities, TRANSPARENCY and SMOTHY to the touch.
This course allows you to develop simple basic techniques, all tricks to avoid cracks, breakages, deformations, the secrets to recover a broken piece, the knowledge of the correct drying and the different firing curves.
We would use body and slip porcelain with and without the use of single and double-fired molds. The purpose is to ENHANCE CREATIVITY WITH THE RIGHT KNOWLEDGE OF ALL RESOURCES IN THE FIELD OF PORCELAIN AND ITS QUALITY OF TRANSPARENCY AND WITHOUT GOING CRAZY!Program: - Fully practical lessons with a theoretical chapter for basic technology: - Preparation of the slip and body porcelain recipe and percentages. - Slip casting porcelain methods with and without molds - Methods of achieving transparency - Method of constructions with slabs or small fragments - Precautions in drying, firing and finishing - How to obtain smooth surfaces - How to glaze with simple means - How to recover broken or craked pieces - Firing curves and how to place fragile pieces in the kiln, use of alumina - Corrections after biscuit and finishing after last firing The 20-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on Friday and Saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on Sunday.

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
