Workshop with Ana-Belén Montero : Ash glazes – FULL

Glazes made from ashes have been used by the ceramicists for thousands of years.

Probably initially appeared in China and used mainly, initially, in the Middle East, they are commonly studied and used by the artists nowadays.

Ashes are indeed an extremely interesting raw material for the ceramicists of the XXI century, eager to know the origin of the raw materials they use and their ecological footprint. In addition, combined with other basic raw materials, which are often few in number, ash makes it possible to produce a wide variety of glossy, satin and mat glazes.

Their complex compositions – depending not only on the kind, but also on the composition of the soil in their region of origin, the part of the collected plant, the harvest season, etc. – also allow the development of unique glazes. It is actually an inexhaustible field of investigation.

“Translucent Bone China” with Sasha Wardell – FULL

Bone China is a paste that was developed in England in the XVIIIth century while Europeans were searching for the recipe of porcelain, kept secret by the Chinese for centuries. It is mainly used for slipcasting and, after firing, it offers magnificent qualities of resistance and translucency.

These characteristics have very much interested Sasha Wardell, an internationally renowned English ceramist, who has become one of Bone China’s specialists. She adapted the industrial molding and casting techniques of this Bone China “porcelain” to personal studio production.

In this three-day course, Sasha Wardell will teach about how to use the Bone China’s slip and some decorating techniques that characterize her work and highlight the whiteness and translucency of this paste. She will also show methods for casting multi-layered colored slips that combine color and translucency. All these techniques can be adapted to the work of casting porcelain for those who prefer to use porcelain instead of Bone China.

Shino glaze was born in Japan in the 16th century. Since then, it has been revisited many times by Japanese potters as well as by American or European potters. Its specificity is that it can reveal very different colors depending on its thickness – from a bright orange to a snowy white.

Encarna Soler is a Spanish ceramic artist specialized in shino glazes. She has travelled and worked in many Eastern countries (Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, etc) as well as Western countries (Europe, Latin America, etc). She is an international reference in the world of contemporary ceramics because of her pedagogical experience and her constant research.

Encarna Soler is coming to Andenne for a three-days workshop about Shino glazes: shino, e-shino, shino nosei, gray shinos, yellow shinos, engobe Gozu, etc.

During the first two days, participants will learn about this family of glazes. They will make tests that will be placed on tiles or small bowls. The last day, the group will be able to analyze them after they have been fired in a gas kiln. They will discuss about their conclusions so everybody will learn from others experiences.
