Course: Aesthetics of translucid and super-translucid zirconium.
The aim of the course is to give to the members the useful information about the features of the material and how to get a great aesthetic result.
The course is divided in two parts:
A theoretical phase about the knowledge of the material and a second phase of practise in which each course member will effect the coloring using the technique and the color in the ZIR pre-sintered (crudd material). The next day, after the sintering we will continue with the characterisation of the colors of the post-sintering and the final glazed.
