“Porcelain: Color and Light” will be presented by Curtis Benzle at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. The event will celebrate the beauty and magic of light as it accentuates color, expands form and energizes surfaces in translucent porcelain. We will discuss the unique, light transmitting characteristics of vitreous porcelain and will follow up with an exploration of techniques used to color and incorporate color and light into our artwork. Benzle will also be covering “kintsugi”---an artistic repair technique using 22K gold leaf that ha used for twenty years.
Topics will include relief carving (lithophane), color additions, colored clay techniques and porcelain formulas, as we consider colored, translucent porcelain in its many manifestations; sculpture, pottery (agateware or neriagi), translucent lighting and jewelry.
Mornings will be devoted to explanation and exploration---demonstrations and technical discussions aimed at unlocking mysteries, expanding knowledge and empowering creativity.
Afternoons will be devoted to making. Your quiet, personal experimentation or technical guidance and assistance---whatever it takes to help you bring out the best.
