Experiment With Clay: Master Class in Filaments & Textures
with Alberto Bustos
3-Day | February 23 - 25th, 2024 | 1 p.m. - 7 p.m.
The main objective of the workshop is to model the clay directly with our hands, without tools. In this way we will be able to communicate directly with the clay and transmit our feelings. With the technique of "launch" we will make textured slabs. Also square, flat and rectangular filaments. Creation of stone textures using pigmented cookies. Application of coloring pigments and glaze, powder and liquid, on the wet clay to do only one firing. We will discover how all these techniques can not only be applied to sculptures. We can also adapt them to the functional ceramic style.
Alberto Bustos is a self-taught artisan. His work with clay has a very personal imprint. Surprising figures, many of them geometric, that do not leave the viewer indifferent are part of his style which is closely linked to the environment. His pieces are unique and seem to have a life of their own. Although he has worked with other materials such as wood and bronze, since he discovered clay 25 years ago, Alberto continues to learn new techniques that for him are infinite. He opened his first workshop 12 years ago and his work has always been inspired by his constant search for nature and freedom.
