Shino glazes in Curaumilla Art Center

This year on January 2016, was successfully made a 15 days workshop about Shino glazes.
The teachers Kent McLaughlin (USA), Doug Casebeer (USA) and Marilu Pelusa Rosenthal (Chile) were working on the wheel and hand building forms that were glazed in a variety of traditional Japanese Shino glazes.
The origin of the Shino glaze is related to the tea ceremony in Japan since the sixteenth century, a glaze that in it´s origins was white. The Shinos have evolved in the West, giving a variety of colors with stunning depth that is affected by the components of clay, the type of firing and thickness when applied.
The work was fired in wood and soda kilns, allowing students to explore contemporary applications of this ancient glaze tradition.
