Anna Kupriyanov's original course
Ceramic reliefs have become the hallmark of our studio.For 20 years I have been creating reliefs for the facades of houses and interiors'decoration.I can make reliefs up to 3 square meters in a small studio with at least 60 liters kiln.

Technique with the possibility of getting a finished relief in one firing in a small studio has become the most demanded and popular topic for teaching in our ceramics school.

I provide 2 and 3-day face-to-face classes and teach online.

A film was recorded for self-study.

It shows all the stages of work on the relief, usingan example of the panel "Sirin bird", from the first lines on clay to detailing, painting and analysis of the finished work.

It also describes the materials and tools that I use in my work.

One of the most important advantages of feedback is analysis. Often it is enough just to "twist" the composition or the nuances of modeling and decoration a little to make the work more expressive. Often we see: something is wrong, but it is not clear how to fix it. Here we analyze many examples, we learnfrom our own and other people's work.

Our students live in different countries and use different materials. We design the work so that the techniques are universal and suitable for everyone.
It is easier to make large things from сhamotte (grain 0.5 - 2 mm). Medium temperatures are suitable for the interior, for the facade, it is better to do a higher firing in accordance with the temperature corridor of your clay.
minimum: 2 dull/opaque / 2 colored / transparent / colorless 200 ml is enough. It is better to take those that are already familiar to you and are suitable for the firing temperature of your clay.
White and any color - 200 ml is enough
You can prepare engobes yourself by adding pigments to the white base

Copper oxide or dark glaze
100-200 gr is enough
Preferably without additives "for the brush".

Internet and camera
Internet access is required, at least 2 times a week and a camera. Smartphone is acceptable.

Registration in Telegram, there will be a group for reports and discussion of tasks.

What does our school have for independent study of relief?

I highly recommend the section of the basic course on COMPOSITION. It is written in a simple clear language and greatly simplifies the work on the drawing for the relief and decoration of ceramics.

Of course, it is not necessary to buy these guides to take part in the intensive. They just help and explain the topic in detail.

See you online!

Next year, three-day face-to-face intensives in the studio are unlikely to take place.

However, with the help of live chat and zooms, it is possible to study comfortably and successfully!
