Il workshop

Lavoreremo con argille a bassa temperatura, creando decorazioni integrali. L’uso parziale di smalto permette una particolare versatilità nel concepire gli oggetti. La linea guida sarà la “doppia funzione”; penseremo ad oggetti che possono essere utilizzati o allestiti in più modi, come per esempio un contenitore che diventa un pannello decorativo.

Le tecniche

Costruiremo a lastra, a mano libera, con l’ausilio di forme in gesso e di stencil. Inoltre, per quelli interessati e già capaci c’è l’opportunità di utilizzare il tornio. Isabella Fazzo stimolerà a lavorare con il colore in libertà, incorporandolo nell’argilla in modo composito, oppure stirandolo in essa. Questo approccio potrà essere approfondito, da includere anche l’intarsio con argille di colori diversi.

L’insegnamento

L’insegnante dimostrerà tecniche di colorazione originali e di costruzione, accompagnandole costantemente con riflessioni su forma e funzionalità e su come questi concetti possono interagire in modo libero, svincolati da una impostazione prestabilita. In tal modo, ogni studente sarà stimolato a studiare forme multifunzionali ed a creare un rapporto attivo e partecipe con gli oggetti. Agli studenti non è richiesta una particolare conoscenza, ma la disponibilità alla sperimentazione.

Forme multi funzionali possono essere:

  • Vassoi che creano un pannello/ installazione sul muro in attesa di essere usati
  • Ciotole o tazze che capovolta diventano porta candela.
  • Il pannello decorativo che crea composizione interattiva a più facce, ma potrebbe trasformarsi in un sottopiatto
  • “Cuscini “contenitori

Introduction

In this course we will work with low temperature clays, stains and colored clays. The partial use of glaze allows for great versatility in the designing of the objects. Our guideline will be the double face, meaning that we will strive to conceive objects that have a double function, such as a bowl that may have a different live as a decorative panel.

Techniques taught

We will be handbuilding, using plaster molds and stencils. Those interested and already capable in throwing may use the potter’s wheel. Stains will be incorporated into the clay bodies; the clay will be stretched and twisted and furthermore, inlay may be applied. In other words, our aim will be the creation of personal, expressive slabs, for the creation of objects that are multi-functional. 

Teaching method

Isabella Fazzo’ s demos on her unique coloring and construction techniques will be complemented by reflections on form and functionality and on how these concepts can interact freely, without a pre-established approach. As a result, each student will be stimulated to study multifunctional forms, creating an active and participatory relationship with objects. Willingness to experiment is most appreciated.

Multi-functional forms can be:

  • Trays or bowls that become an installation or panel to hang on a wall.
  • Reversed bowls or cups that become candle holders.
  • A panel with flexible components that may be turned into placemats.
  • Pillows that become containers.
