28 Paperclay with Porcelain
Antonella Cimatti www.antonellacimatti.it
July 6th – 12th 2014

Handbuilding. For all

New skills for objects of filigree transparency.
This five day course is dedicated to the realization of delicate forms employing paper porcelain. Antonella will introduce the workshop viewing images of contemporary artists who use paperclay and of her own work which is based on the concept of subtlety and grace. Paperclay allows for delicate, perforated forms, in fact, thanks to an appropriate mixture with paper, porcelain acquires notable characteristics, allowing inventive design impossible with traditional techniques. Antonella will explain all aspects of her technique with practical demonstrations of the appropriate preparation of the mixture, the creation of personalized shapes of filigree on molds and slip cast parts. Shapes may be functional or abstract and participants will be encouraged to use their personal creativity. The workshop is taught in Italian and English.
