Stageplekken om een ambacht te leren-werken met keramiek

Stageplekken om een ambacht te leren-werken met keramiek

Keramisten, mbo studenten en iedereen die meer wil leren van het keramisch vak kunnen contact opnemen met dutchceramics. In een ruime hal hebben wij 3 afdelingen: de kleigieterij, glazuren en ovenstook en de decoratieafdeling.

In de gieterij (vormgeving) wordt de ingekochte klei in poedervorm eerst vloeibaar gemaakt in een grote rond staalcontainer, hier wordt de klei op de juiste dikte gebracht en mechanisch gezeefd. Vervolgend kunnen de gipsen mallen die zijn klaargezet op de giettafels dmv luchtdruk met het gietpistool met vloeibare klei worden gevuld. Na korte tijdn kunnen de mallen weer worden leeggegoten en nog wat later geopend worden zodat de al wat hardere klei eruit kan worden gehaald.

Na de eerste (biscuit)stook kan het decoreren beginnen: dat kan door handschilderen of door het rechtstreeks op de biscuit zeefdrukken, dit laatste kan lastig zijn omdat veel vormen niet vlak zijn maar juist bol of hoekig. 

Tenslotte volgt het glazuren. Dit kan met transparante glazuur zijn of met dekkende kleuren en het vullen van een van de 7 ovens tussen de 100 en 120 Liter.
