Porcelain 3 Week Intermediate and Advanced Course

September 9, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Porcelain 3 Week Intermediate and Advanced Course

Starting Thursday 9th September 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Learn about the amazing material of porcelain!

We use a mid-fire Keane’s Lumina which is not a true porcelain, however the material is similar and still exciting to use! Porcelain is knows as a difficult material – prone to cracking, delicateness, difficulty in handling. We will discuss the effects and limitations of using a mid fire porcelain and the advantages/disadvatnages of using a true high fire porcelain.

Week One

  • Using Keanes Midfire Porcelain slip
  • Using it to cast
  • Using it to build and join
  • Marbling – neriage – agate ware
  • Making nerikome slabs

Week Two

  • Using nerikome slabs to create fine hand built pieces
  • Using agate ware to throw fine porcelain work (for the throwers)
  • Slab building with porcelain
  • Pinch pots with porcelain
  • Carving and piecrcing with porcelain

Week Three

  • Decoration with porcelain before bisque, after bisque and gold/lustres after glost
  • Finishing work
  • Glazes, stains, oxides

(these images are all Pinterest – lets create our own!)

Feel free to com to the studio as you please to complete work after week three and put all work through the glaze firing. A gold/lustre firing will be done shortly.

Porcelain supplied, colours supplied – you may like to get gold/washi/lustres and decals for your work. 3 firings included.
