30 Paperclay with Porcelain
Luca Tripaldi - www.giallocaino.com
July 22nd - 28th, 2012

Handbuilding. For all


Paperclay with porcelain is a material with infinite possibilities. It combines the multitude of making techniques possible with paperclay with the strength and the translucency of porcelain allowing the creation of unique objects, from the functional to the purely abstract. You will learn the preparation of various mixtures of paperclay with porcelain, which will be used in liquid form for filigree, dipping and casting, or at the plastic state for sculpture and use of paperclay sheets.
The objects will be fired at 1260 C and may be left unglazed for a beautiful matt, white feel, or enhanced with contrasting or subtle glazes.
Those who are already expert will extend their technical knowledge, while those at their first experience will be introduced to the subject in an unusual and playful way. Handbuilding. For all


Cost 860 Includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials and firings.
