49 Jewels in porcelain
Instructor: Luca Tripaldi
Type: Hand building. For all
Date: December 5 - 8, 2009


An intensive workshop of three and a half days to create gorgeous jewellery.  We will work in white porcelain, fired at 1230 ° C, then glazed at low temperature to obtain precious effects through the use of metallic glazes, opaque and colour crystal glazes. Thin, multicoloured pieces are achieved spreading layers of porcelain on plaster. Further techniques include the use of paperclay, with the intrusion of organic materials and glass, then single fired. With these elements we will create necklaces, earrings and rings, each in a personal, unique and contemporary style.
