  1. At present, it is an unprecedented era of innovation. People constantly discover new materials and new processes, and new changes have occurred every day. The birth of ceramic jewelry is essentially an innovation that applies new materials in traditional industries. It brings not only a change in craftsmanship, but also a change in ideas. Because contemporary jewelry has become a medium for people's expressions and feelings, it also makes the development of ceramic jewelry more likely.
    The main ingredients of pottery are cashiate minerals and kaolin (porcelain soil) containing clay. All types of clay can be used to make jewelry, but kaolin (a softer clay in the pottery industry) is very suitable for jewelry production because of its fineness and excellent texture. This kind of material can be cast into the shape of hollow and thin tires with powder slurry. In addition, it has the characteristics of light quality and good feel. If the porcelain is not glazed, it is called "vegetarian porcelain". Here I will introduce the basic processing process of several ceramics.
    Ceramic handmade
    Themoring of clay processing by hand or simple tools is a basic operation. The model made from this can be placed in a high temperature in the kiln and made into a solid and durable utensil. Because the density of the ceramic is relatively large, the production of jewelry should be made of small lumps.
    Operation method:
    1 kneading the clay multiple times to ensure that there is no residual air, otherwise the product will be broken when firing in the kiln. Made according to the design pattern or reference model, and often use the sprayer to spray the clay to keep water moist. When making a cylindrical object model, first use a long clay plate to produce a spiral coil shape, and then use a wet finger or rubber presence to flatten the surface. You can use a pointed tool to make a planned hole on the model, or you can make a variety of decorations on the clay surface.
    2 When the clay is not used, wrap it tightly in a plastic bag to keep it moist.
    3 The well -made models should be dried slowly before firing. Different clay firing temperatures are different. The best kiln used has procedures and functions to control temperature changes.
    This porcelain
    The porcelain soil is a clay with fine structures. After firing, it usually shows the undzip effect. Once the formation is made, the porcelain blanks can form a leather -like state after drying, and it can be easily carved afterwards.
    Operation method:
    1 kneading porcelain soil multiple times to make porcelain blanks for carving, the shape should be as simple as possible, because it is necessary to support it when carving.
    2 Make the porcelain soil a little bit, so that it shows the leather but still maintains toughness. At this time, you can use carving tools or equipment to carefully engrav on it. This material is most suitable for a bold relief. During the production process, the porcelain soil should not be too dry, otherwise it will easily become crispy and cracking.
    3 After the carving is completed, the finished product must be completely dry and then fired. The best kiln used has procedures and functions to control temperature changes.
    The porcelain soil grouting
    This can be made of thin and hollow models by casting porcelain soil slurry into the gypsum mold. This porcelain shell formed after firing can be used to make larger jewelry components.
    The operation method:
    1 mixes porcelain soil and water until smooth, but not too thin. Preparing a plaster mold to make a hollow model, a mold consisting of two parts is needed, and there is no bottom cut.
    2 Pour porcelain soil pulp from the opening of the mold and constantly stir it, so that the porcelain soil paste is evenly applied to the inside surface of the mold, and the excess porcelain soil paste will quickly suck the water in the dried pulp quickly. In fact, it is drying porcelain soil.
    3 Repeat this coating operation until the required thickness is formed, so that the model is dried into leather shape and carefully removed from the mold. The raised edge left by the cutting mold can be improved on the surface if needed.
    4 can be fired after the model is dry. The firing temperature of the porcelain soil is higher than that of other clay materials.
    The "adaptation" project of artist Velislava Bonova reinterpreted the relationship between man and nature. By recycling porcelain and ceramic items from daily life, the artist creates new artworks. The organic three -dimensional form is inspired by the smooth surface, lines, clams and bones. Between abstract and easy -to -identify balance, the artist abstracts ordinary objects into the world of imagination, giving them a new life.

    The artist Peter Hoogeboom has been living and working in Amsterdam since he graduated from Gerrit Rietveld College in 1992. Three years later, he began to implement the production method of pouring ceramics. Small customized gypsum molds provide him with hundreds of hollow ceramic elements, helping him to produce dense and light works. His works are reminiscent of Queen Elizabeth's tie and neck accessories with national characteristics. rnPeter Hoogeboom作品rnNecklace: Desert Necklace,1996rnCollier: Spanish Collar,1995rnBrooch: People's Tea,2011rnNecklace: Clay Feet,2011rnBracelet: One for the Road, 2011
