30 Smokefiring with Paperclay and Porcelain
Luca Tripaldi
July 24th - 30th, 2011
Handbuilding. For all

Who loves the feel and look of burnished, textured or partially glazed clay surface will be thrilled to obtain a multitude of effects by combining as versatile a material as paperclay with porcelain and smoke firing techniques that imply infinite variations and a randomness from the action of smoke. Shades will range from deep blacks and silvery gray given with the ancient technique of Bucchero, soft and blurred grays from sawdust-firing, or the bright red-brown of pit firing and the crackle raku in  glaze. Beginners will learn the fundaments of handbuilding techniques, while those who are experienced will expand their knowledge in the various firing techniques.

Cost € 860  It includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials and firings
