Mastercourse
Nerikomi and Neriage Colored Porcelain Clay Techniques
with Dorothy Feibleman

Date: 6 - 13 April, 2011.

In this intensive workshop students will learn how to work with nerikomi and zogan inlaid laminated colored porcelain clay using a unique variety of coloring and fusing methods developed by the artist. Participants will learn how to mix colors, how to make gradations and how to make patterns. They will also complete a sake cup or tea bowl and learn finishing techniques.

Dorothy Feibleman is one of most experimental porcelain arists in the world. She started working with colored laminated clay (Nerikomi or Neriage in Japanese characters) in 1969. In her work, different colored porcelains and clay bodies are laminated together in such a way that every change in color, texture and translucency is structural.

These forms are also dependent on the movement of the above elements in the construction, drying and firing. Since 1995 the artist has been working almost exclusively with white clays with varied translucency and color. Translucent white/white is her original development. In a special project at Jikken kobo, Inax, Tokoname, Japan, Feibleman developed new translucent porcelain and zogan processes for industry and a new translucent porcelain which fires in one hour. As a result of her research in Japan, she made the largest, thinnest translucent nerikomi zogan studio pieces to date internationally. Translucent porcelain nerikomi is not traditional anywhere. It's origins are western and are contemporary.

In 1973, she moved to England and set up her first studio. In Japan she has been a guest artist at Inax, Tokoname, Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, Shigaraki, in 1997 and 1999, and Seto Ceramic & Glass Center, Seto City in 2001.

She set up her own studios in Tokoname, Japan. She has given lectures, demonstrations or taught at Kyoto Geidai, Tokyo Geidai, Tsinghua University Beijing, PRC, Jingdezhen Art University, PRC, and Rhode Island School of Design, RI, USA. She has participated in many exhibitions internationally. Her works were included in a number of public collections including Victoria andAlbert Museum, London, England, Stuttgart Museum, Germany, Metropolitan Museum ofArt, New York, International Ceramic Studio Museum, Kecskemet, Hungary and Museum of Contemporary Ceramics, Shigaraki, Japan. She has been featured in several publications including Ceramic Monthly Magazine, Dictionary of British Studio Potters, Ceramic Review and The Studio Potter

The tutor will give short demonstrations and the students will then have time to explore what has been shown, with the tutor’s guidance if necessary. Students will be encouraged to discuss their progress with each other as they work.

Course fee: 150,000 HUF (incudes self catering accommodation in single room, course materials and firing costs, tuition)

Nerikomi Master Class in Hungary October 6th-13th was popular. ICS is running another course in April 2011 - 6th through the 13th of April 2011



Dorothy will be teaching a master class at the International Ceramics Studio
in Kecskemet, Hungary from October 6th-13th.

In this intensive five day workshop students will learn how to work with nerikomi and zogan inlaid laminated colored porcelain clay using a unique variety of coloring and fusing methods developed by the artist. Participants will learn how to mix colors, how to make gradations and how to make patterns.

Dorothy will give short demonstrations and the students will then have time to explore these ideas. Students will be encouraged to discuss their progress with each other as they work.

Dorothy started working with colored laminated clay (Nerikomi) in 1969. When she moved to England in 1973, she started working with translucent nerikomi porcelain. In her work, different colored porcelains and clay bodies are laminated together in such a way that every change in color, texture and translucency is structural. The shape depends on and is controlled by the patterns in the construction, drying and firing.

Her works are included in a number of public collections including Victoria and Albert Museum, England, Contemporary Museum of Art, Honolulu, Hawaii, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and Museum of Contemporary Ceramics, Shigaraki, Japan.
