Throwing, handbuilding and surface treatments. For all


The purpose of the workshop is to experiment searching for richly texturized yet delicate surface effects. They will be applied on simple shapes made on the wheel or using hand building techniques. We will use porcelain which in some cases will be treated with metallic salts at the bisqued state, then fired to high temperature or otherwise be fired at high temperature and subsequently treated with low temperature materials such as glazes, sands, copper and gold luster. Some objects will be fired four to five times in order to obtain unique natural precious surfaces like minerals born from earth.

La MeridianaLuca Tripaldi was born in Turin, Italy, where he currently lives and has his studio. After training in graphic design, he worked for ten years in theatre as a sculptor before being captivated totally by ceramics. Subsequently he opened his own ceramic studio, exploring the many possibilities of porcelain: unglazed or decorated with crystalline glazes or metallic salts. He has worked with and assisted Malcolm Davis for many years studying the carbon trapping technique. During the last two years he has increasingly developed his work as a jewellery designer, blending all of his experiences to create exclusive porcelain jewellery.
Additionally he conducts workshops, teaching various porcelain techniques throughout Europe and the United States.
