16 White Earth-Red Earth:
Expressions in Porcelain and Bucchero

Victor Greenaway - www.victorgreenaway.com
April 15th - 21st, 2012

Throwing. Intermediate / advanced


Porcelain for me is the ultimate in ceramic expression.The qualities are attractive due to the purity of the material and the unique fired characteristics. For these reasons it has recently become the preferred material for artist all over the world. Bucchero, as an ancient Etruscan ceramic process involving smoke-fired terracotta, provides the perfect contrast to porcelain with equally attractive qualities and challenges, at the reverse end of the firing temperature scale.
One transmits light, the other absorbs.
Together, the joint dynamics offer both a contrast and an affinity in the design process. During the workshop students will directly experience the challenge of working with and firing both materials, elaborating a design concept which will enhance the characteristics both contrasting materials, then making and firing the parts separately and subsequently assembling.
We will learn to appreciate and exalt the unique and complementary qualities of each material.


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