Faenze (faience) of Egypt! Siliceous mixtures and blue and turquoise glazes

Loading Events

From July 22 to 24, a workshop for adults on siliceous impastos and blue and turquoise glazes will be held in the MIC laboratory.

The course takes as its reference the siliceous ceramics of Fatimid Egypt (969-1168) with engraved decorations embellished by monochrome glazing, freely inspired by the Chinese porcelain and céladons of the Song era (960-1279), proposing a reinterpretation with materials and methods of the present day.

The laboratory activities, aimed at the realization of moulds of faenza siliceous tiles with relief decorations, subsequently glazed, will be integrated by the discussion of some topics of history and technology of ceramics related to the production of reference, with a visit to the collections of the MIC.
