World Market Ceramic Vase Decor Ideas

World Market Ceramic Vase Decor Ideas

world-market-Ceramic-Vase

Part low-cost decor emporium, part global grocery store, this relatively new chain (it started as an independent San Francisco shop in 1958) has exploded in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only can you pick up an Indian-inspired duvet cover, but you’ll also find French lavender laundry detergent to wash it with, as well as Belgian chocolate to snack on as you snuggle in bed. Nowhere else can you go around the world of furniture, decor, food and drink in less than 80 minutes. (I also love that the store has partnered with Novica, an online marketplace that sells the work of artisans from around the globe, to offer some of its lower-priced pieces in their stores.)

Qing Dynasty porcelain

By Ceramic Design



Primary source material on Qing Dynasty porcelain is available from both foreign residents and domestic authors. Two letters written by Père Francois Xavier d’Entrecolles, a Jesuit missionary and industrial spy who lived and worked in Jingdezhen in the early eighteenth century, described in detail manufacturing of porcelain in the city. In his first letter dated 1712, d’Entrecolles described the way in which pottery stones were crushed, refined and formed into little white bricks, known in Chinese as petuntse. He then went on to describe the refining of china clay kaolin along with the developmental stages of glazing and firing. He explained his motives:

Nothing but my curiosity could ever have prompted me to such researches, but it appears to me that a minute description of all that concerns this kind of work might, be useful in Europe.

In 1743, during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor, Tang Ying, the imperial supervisor in the city produced a memoir entitled “Twenty illustrations of the manufacture of porcelain.” Unfortunately, the original illustrations have been lost, but the text of the memoir is still accessible.

Ancient ceramics in Palace Museum destroyed

By Ceramic Design



A piece of ancient Chinese ceramics in the Beijing Palace Museum, known as Ge Ware, has been destroyed due to improper handling. Academics were inspecting the pieces when the accident occurred. The Palace Museum’s inspection of the ancient ceramics has now been suspended.

Ge Ware originated in the Song Dynasty, about 800 years ago. Ge Ware represents one of the pinnacles of Chinese porcelain. Only a few hundred pieces remain, all of them priceless. Ge Ware is renowned for the high skill needed to create their distinctive crackling pattern.

Ge Ware destroyed due to improper handling.

How to Install Ceramic Wall Tiles

By Ceramic Design



Installing ceramic wall tile can sound like a big job if you’ve never done it before, but it’s really not that difficult once you start following directions on how to do it. Maybe you want to retile your bathroom, kitchen, counter top, backsplash or shower. In any case, installing ceramic wall tiles can give the room a whole new look and feel. Here’s how to install ceramic wall tile:

  1. Mark lines on the wall.To start installing ceramic wall tile, first you need to find the center of the wall and ‘dry fit’ your tiles to see if the pattern ends similarly on the edges. Use a pencil to mark vertical and horizontal lines where appropriate. You want the tile size to be consistent as they approach each end point.
  2. Apply the adhesive.Apply the tile adhesive to the wall with the notched trowel, starting in the middle of the wall. Set the tiles into the adhesive and place the spacers in-between each tile as you go. Be sure to give each tile a little twist to ensure a good bond with the adhesive. Cut the tiles as needed to fit on the ends. You can also use sandpaper to smooth out the tile edges if they are sharp after you cut them.
  3. Let it dry.Let the tiles set in the adhesive overnight.
  4. Mix the grout.Remove the tile spacers and mix the grout according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  5. Apply the grout.Using the rubber float, apply the grout at a 45 degree angle. Wipe off excess grout with a wet sponge.
  6. Wipe clean as needed.After about an hour, check for grout haze on the tiles and wipe them clean as needed.
  7. Seal edges with caulk.Seal the edges with caulk (be sure to use a mildew resistant caulk if the tile is in an area where it will get wet).
  8. See the Resources listed below for more tiling ideas.

Avis Tonge BA (Hons) Ceramic Design

By Ceramic Design



The inspiration for this work has come from water – the lack of it in the third world and its waste in the western world. Taps and bottles have become symbols of western excesses. The use of found objects, recycling, has been symbolic of the ingenuity of those of the third world.

The NMMU Ceramic Design

By Ceramic Design

The NMMU Ceramic Department offers outstanding facilities and a vibrant staff that are constantly involved with current trends and events. The department has a comprehensive Ceramic Design course and a Ceramic Fine Art component.

 

The Ceramic Design Course is geared to equip learners with the necessary techniques and information for starting their own business once they graduate. The course runs over 3 years, and covers clay hand building, slip casting, press moulding, plaster mould making, jiggering, transfer printing, throwing, glaze and kiln technology. At 3rd year level, learners are encouraged to experiment with their own concepts and to formulate new designs that may become the start of their signature range.

The course also touches on the business component of running a small ceramic studio. Learners are given instruction on costing wares, product evaluation, marketing and product design. Furthermore, learners are exposed to direct selling to the public through the department’s Red Earth Clay Project initiative, an “earn and learn” project, which facilitates an in-house gallery.

 

The Ceramic Fine Art component is primarily focused on the conceptual nature of the artwork. The instruction concentrates on the fabrication of the proposed pieces and their installation and purpose.
