JEAN MARC FONDIMARE

AFTER EXPERIENCING POTTERY WHEEL WORK, IT IS FINALLY TOWARDS THE CASTING TECHNIQUE THAT JEAN-MARC FONDIMARE TURNS. HE PREPARES THE LIQUID PORCELAIN, CALLED BARBOTINE, POURS IT IN PLASTER MOLDS THATHE HIMSELF CREATED AND SHAPED. BY ABSORBING WATER, THE PLASTER ALLOWS A THIN LAYER OF PORCELAIN TO HARDEN. THE SURPLUS IS REMOVED THEN THE MOLD IS DRIED. AFTER A VARIABLE DRYING TIME, THE PORCELAIN IS UNMOLDED BEFORE BEING PUT IN AN OVEN AT 1280 ° C. THERE WILL BE TWO FIRING STEPS. AFTER THE FIRST FIRING, THE CERAMICS CAN BE DECORATED, JEAN-MARC ENAMELS THE INTERIORS OF HIS OBJECTS SO THAT THEY ARE USEFUL IN EVERYDAY LIFE.
