Why Porcelain?

Why Porcelain?

Sometimes you don’t choose the material the material chose you.
Why porcelain? The first thing that attracted me to it was the
translucent quality then the carving. I was very impressed with
the last one “carving”, I believe porcelain is the best for that,
especially Helios. I tried experimenting with different Technics
like stamping, carving and printing. I tried some forms too,
from figurative sculpture to a containers. For almost a year
and a half, I tried to take notes on my pieces and I will share
what I’ve learned so far.

 

Characteristic
My Observation
White
It is like a white canvas, Colors can be pure and bright. Sometimes it doesn’t need any colors at all, beautiful results with only sanding.
Low porosity, watertight
Low permeability and elasticity
Difficult to work with, It is a challenge to make a piece without grog; work with least amount of water it may help a little.
Translucent to some degree, thinner
 Tough material
The best material for carving
The finished line is clean and magnificent. Translucent colors like celadon can highlight the carving.
Smooth
Elegant, softness
