Robert Cooper’s workshop developed around the assembly technique as a method for creating and constructing works of different shapes and sizes. The students were invited to produce a wide range of shapes and objects obtained from the pressure of clay on plaster and ceramic molds, but also through the slab and colombine technique. During the preparation of the objects, the artist demonstrated a series of decoration techniques with engobes and glazes: printing on plaster surfaces, silk-screen printing on ceramics, carving on clay and plaster, use of papers and fabrics for the creation of textures and surfaces through pressure or immersion in clay, painting with engobes and enamels.
The shapes were subsequently decorated, modelled and assembled together with the aim of creating a unique and personal composition.
