This Masterclass will accentuate the peculiarities of the color red in glazing.  It will provide a practical overview of the technological possibilities (copper reds, iron reds, cadmium-selenium red, stain red, inclusion stain red, chrome red, nickel red) to produce the color red in glazing.

Kaapke offers a practical based introduction in artistic glaze research, laboratory work, firing processes and glaze documentation. Experiments with existing recipes will result in the creation of an own physical-red-archive, fitting to the individual artistic interests and needs of the single participant, which the participants can take home together with their own recipe booklet after the Masterclass.

Aside from the practical exercises the participants will receive theoretical subjects and knowledge about application examples of the color red in the artistic field of ceramics.


Lena Kaapke

In a three-year interdisciplinary research project on “the color red in ceramic technologies” German artist Lena Kaapke, has developed a laboratory research and visual presentation of historical and contemporary reds in ceramics.  Kaapke created a representative spectrum of the ceramic color red, which is accessible and explorable in form of a haptic archive.
