Workshop by Rafael Pérez

Details

The workshop with Rafael Pérez comprises learning about two of the artist's personal techniques and working with them. In the first part of the workshop, participants concentrate on clay's sculptural qualities and its possibilities of shape and form, exploring the material's strength by cutting and impacting it. In the second phase, the layering technique, for which the artist is famous, will be presented: his works are hallmarked by multiple layers of clay, with alternating pigmentation and thicknesses. The various combinations of surfaces and forms offered by this technique will be examined.

In addition, the workshop will include a part dedicated to painting on ceramics. The artist will demonstrate the “vidriadas en blanco” technique, in which over-glaze pigments are used on a glazed surface.

“My work is a game that interests and involves me. I search for beauty, or rather a state of mind, or a vision, that enables me to discover surprise and emotion”.

Rafael Pérez is an internationally-famous Spanish artist. His work is appreciated all over the world. He attained a diploma in ceramics at the Escola Massana in Barcelona, and he has been a member of the International Academy of Ceramics since 2007. His work has been exhibited at the International Ceramics Competition in Mino, and in many galleries and museums, in Spain and internationally.
