Throwing and/or handbuilding. Non beginners
The course is intended for all those who are in the mood for porcelain and are looking for new tips. Depending on their preferences and abilities, students will throw or hand build with porcelain or paper porcelain.
A focus will be the presentation of various types of porcelains and their specific properties. Fritz Rossmann, will show a simple effective way to produce paper porcelain, which has phenomenal properties for building and repairing pieces.
We will strive to enhance the specific qualities of porcelain. Fritz Rossmann, will follow up on all questions and topics, with tips and tricks out of his large bag of experience as a potter and instructor.
We will use slips and traditional reduction firing glazes like celadon, tenmoku and iron red. Some inspiration for shapes and surface treatment will come from traditional and contemporary ceramics, presented during a lecture. Students will take home their own pieces and leave with enriched with more skill and knowledge.
