A Faenza, sul finire degli anni 60′, Guerrino Tramonti pratica una tecnica ceramica pittorica denominata “A grosso spessore”. Si tratta di una ceramica che prevede la formazione di uno spessore alto di vetro liquido (cristallina) che allaga entro una superficie piana definita da una bordatura.
Durante il corso saranno fatte esperienze con l’inserimento di smalti, ingobbi, fritte colorate, vetri da vetraria e fili metallici. Saranno impiagate anche le “terre sigillate” che saranno applicate sulle cornici a formare rugginose e brillanti cortecce. Le forme in argilla già biscottata saranno fornite dall’organizzazione.
Programma: Applicazione su biscotto di ingobbi naturali del genere terra sigillata – applicazione al centro delle forme di smalti, vetri in frammenti ecc e copertura di vernice trasparente o colorata in rame con varie tecniche di miscelazione – cottura notturna – descrizione dei prodotti usati – esempio di preparazione di una terra sigillata – nelle foto alcuni esempi di opere realizzate da G. CimattiLe 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

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.

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.

Una buona ceramica si distingue non solo per come è rivestita e la sua intrinseca arte ma sopratutto per il suo corpo che è forte e compatto quando è realizzata in gres. Oggi è possibile utilizzare un innovativo gres bianco, anche senza raggiungere la faticosa e costosa alta temperatura, ed avere la sinterizzazione di questa argilla in tutti i tipi di forni per ceramica.
Durante il corso faremo anche esperienza di come sia possibile ridurre ulteriormente i costi facendo una cottura unica di argilla e smalti che viene infatti definita monocottura. Useremo un'argilla plastica che rende facile modellare qualsiasi tipo di forma e particolari medium per l'applicazione a pennello di rivestimenti che saranno campiti anche con l'impiego di maschere adesive. Sara possibile infine anche applicare, in seconda cottura a 900 gradi, un simpatico e innovativo smalto oro.
Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 e termina alle ore 17:00 del sabato e inizia alle ore 9:00 e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica.Compreso nel corso:

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, with a modern twist, allow to express, through many aesthetic solutions, from a jewel, a vase, a sculpture, an object, to a complex installation. Among the constructive techniques of colored body porcelain, by hand and with mold will be the contemporary revisiting of: L'Agata, Jasper, Zebra, Nerikomi, Mosaico with composite tiles and Mishima.
To take full advantage of the potential of these techniques, all the possible exercises will be carried out to get to know their strength and refinement. In addition, the realization of all the techniques will be followed by the tricks to avoid problems, breakages or deformations, reaching the maximum of beauty in the colors.
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

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.
