Imparare a lavorare con gli smalti, l’applicazione facile, la decorazione e la cottura della ceramica.
Quanta acqua si deve aggiungere nella preparazione dello smalto? Come si deve procedere per fare una buona applicazione? In questo corso vogliamo introdurvi alla smaltatura dei manufatti ceramici fornendo alcune competenze specifiche di base. Partiremo dalla conoscenza dei prodotti (Smalti, Cristalline, Colori, etc.) con le loro peculiarità, inizieremo da come si dove procedere nella loro preparazione e termineremo con la possibilità di provare le principali tecniche di smaltatura e con una guida alla cottura ceramica.
In particolare tratteremo l’applicazione per immersione, per spruzzatura con aerografo e la smaltatura a pennello con l’ausilio di particolari veicoli che consentono una migliore applicazione. Verranno presentati i passaggi necessari per ottenere effetti nei rivestimenti anche con applicazioni in più strati che saranno realizzati su supporti in argilla, già cotti, forniti dall’organizzazione: terracotta, terraglia tenera, terracotta di argilla da gres e semirefrattaria da Raku.
Ed infine saranno affrontati anche i difetti che si riscontrano nella smaltatura e a questo proposito è possibile portare eventuali lavori personali finiti sulle cui problematiche sarà possibile svolgere una interessante lezione.

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.
