Event description

Description

The Fortynine Studio and Bic Tieu Studio combine their expertise in a two day workshop.

Porcelain and Bronze forms will be designed and made, coming together as functional or sculptural pieces.


Run over two Sunday afternoons from 1pm to 5pm.

Day 1: Attendees will learn how to create forms from wax for casting in bronze. Then they will be shown how to sculpt a form in clay to create a plaster mould for slip casting.

During the week we will have the bronze pieces cast (casting fees will be approximately $25) and dry the slip casting moulds.

Day 2: Attendees will be shown how to slip cast using porcelain or terracotta. Pieces can be carved or textured and oxides added to the finished pieces to accentuate the texture. There will be demonstrations on how to refine bronze piece and clean up any imperfections from the casting process. A patina or polish can be applied to the bronze. Ceramic pieces will be fired ready to picked up a week later and the two pieces will come together to form a beautiful whole.
