          TERRAS SIGILLATAS AND COLLOIDAL SLIPS

                                               ONLINE COURSE: 20 HOURS

 

INTRODUCTION

This course will be an introduction to colloidal slips, in particular, to those known as Terra Sigillata.

We will look at the technique without judgment, in a neutral way, like a sculptor or painter who wants to finish their piece in a natural way. If we take into account that clay is one of the most abundant and accessible materials in nature, we have a sense when we are modeling and painting how close we are to nature.

In this course, we will explain and share knowledge from the most basic levels, starting from antiquity, and reaching modern day techniques..

We will divide our time between didactic teaching, making tests and letting each student experiment, so that each person can learn their own methods, with their own materials. We will also talk about sales and how to market.

PROGRAM:

GENERAL OBJECTIVES:

Learn about technique, practice, characteristics, and mastery of Terra Sigillatas and Colloides Slip, and develop decorative techniques.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES:

  • Knowledge of different types of clays, Sigillata, and with other clay techniques.
  • Preparation of the clay and mixes for Terra Sigillatas (polishing and shining).
  • Exploring different types of chemical deflocculates, to treat the clay, in particular, sodium hexametafosphate.
  • Processing and making Sigillatas, learning its characteristics, and different ways to work with it.
  • Applying the technique to clay, and finding and making colors.
  • Coloring the Sigillatas with ceramic pigments (oxides and colorants), and a demonstration of working with soluble salts.
  • Knowledge and practice in application (immersion, painting, and air spray)
  • Knowledge and development of decorative techniques (resist, esgraffito, sponge, stencils, marmolling, bubble , brush, etc.)

COURSE MATERIALS:

We will discuss materials the first day of the course, and I will demonstrate how to we will use them, and explain where to find them.

Here is a detailed list, divided in 2 parts: the first, those materials mandatory to have for the course; and the second, those which have substitutions.

 

MANDATORY MATERIALS:

  • 2 types of clay: 1) stoneware with grog, without any colorants, 2) low temperature terracotta. (10-12 kilos of each)

IMPORTANT!! Have these ready the first days of the class.

  • Hexamatafosphate sodium, to be used as a defloculant. (you can substitute this, but not with the same result.)
  • Your own kiln to fire the samples (observing time to fire and make the samples)
  • Local clay to make samples (200mgs)
  • A scale to measure quantities of clay.
  • 1 liter measuring cup

 

 

NECESSARY MATERIALS:

  • Small digital scale
  • Recycled water bottles-1.5 liters, and 1 4-5 liter bottle
  • White clay, i.e. ball clay, to color the sigillata, 2 kilos.
  • Paint brushes, fine hairs
  • Plastic buckets
  • 1 liter cooking pots, and 1 bigger pot
  • A stove for boiling the sigillatas
  • A wooden plank to kneed the clay
  • Oxides and pigments (cobalt, green, etc.)
  • Plastic glasses
  • Masking tape, straws, dishwashing soap
  • Rolling pins
  • Newspaper
  • Credit cards (recycled)
  • Magic marker
  • Kitchen strainer (80-100)
  • Rain water, or de-mineralized water

TERRA   SIGILLATAS: (low and medium temperatures)

ONLINE COURSE-20 HOURS

General Norms:

 

  • Total hours: approximately 20 hours, divided in 6 days, and various weeks.
  • The class will start around 3pm (Spanish time) and will last 3-4 hours. We will meet over the course of various, alternating days so that each person has the chance to prepare necessary materials, make test samples, and practice techniques. Our written material will give necessary directions for material preparation.
  • The class will be translated in English.
  • Maximum 10 students
  • The class will be part theoretical, and part practical, demonstrated by me live in the class, and developed by each student at home. With whatever difficulties, we can repeat the technique as needed.
