Studio di ceramica-Pottery. After a long period of experimentation and testing at DOCKS POTTERY weʼd like to show our ceramic work. The works we produce come from the use of local red and white clay as well as semigres like the earth of Castellamonte. We make all our own glazes from formulae we found in an old ceramics manual, many of which we have modified after extensive testing and experimentation. All our glazes are lead free and contain no toxic substances. Docks Pottery via Valprato n°68 10155 Torino Italia f.digiovanni@iol.it

Egyptian dough

In my old manual "Ceramica Viva" of Nino Caruso, I'm trying to translate into English the chapter of Egyptian dough.
The Egyptian dough is a alkaline dough with vitrification to 920 - 940 ° C, is not very plastic but with the addition of Bentonite you can work at the wheel.
If any of you help me in the translation, I would be very happy
In anteprimale pictures of the chapter.


































































Islamic ceramics from the collection of MAO in Turin. The color turquoise is the alkaline glaze, the copper black oxide changes to turquoise-blue
P.S. in these hot nights

  3. Hi Filippo, I can't help with the translation. Is this the same as Egyptian paste? The turquoise colors are beautiful, so very rich.

    Your pots are very beautiful so smooth and the spouts seem so perfectly formed. Love the jars too the way the bottom blends gradually into the top, very nice.
