Las arcillas refractarias se caracterizan por su capacidad de resistir temperaturas muy altas sin llegar a descomponerse, contienen una gran cantidad de chamotas, desde fina a muy gruesa, que aportan diferentes texturas a las obras cerámicas.
Son arcillas muy apreciadas en la cerámica artística, la cocción a alta temperatura de estas piezas nos ofrece una gama de tonos rústicos, auténticos … que siempre logran sorprenderme.
Arcilla refractaria horneada a 1240ºC.
Beautiful beautiful dragon, my dear Belén!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
Sometimes, I think the clay guides my hands while I work, this piece was appearing little by little … maybe it was a dragon trapped in a block of clay and I just helped him out 🙂
Thank you very much dear Marina, I’m really glad you like it !!
Oh, yes it was trapped and you liberated it! 😉 xoxoxoxoxo
I always willing to help, somehow … I feel like the mom of all my creations 😉
Thanks again dear Marina!!!
C’est du très beau travail….Bonne journée
J’aime travailler avec cette argile, les résultats sont toujours surprenants.
Merci beaucoup George, bonne journée!!
beautiful artwork, Belen.
Thank you very much Francina, I am really glad that you like it, it is one of those works in which my hands worked faster than my head, the dragon seemed in a hurry to show itself, the results working with this clay are always spectaculars.
Whoa…those are high temps. But boy, does it produce beautiful work.
Thank you very much Monika, you are very kind!
I love working with this kind of clays, the experience is magical, very hot, a great fire but it always brings good results 🙂
Have a nice day.
Belén, I absolutely love that dragon! The texture is incredible.
Thanks again, Monika!!
This is a fabulous piece! I just love it. It’s like a Dragon Unicorn. Very inspired, Belén.
Hug and kisses. (Working on the post!)
The piece was changing in my hands for his own will, sometimes snake, other unicorn … I think it’s a dragon who likes costumes 🙂
This kind of clay allows me to unfold my imagination without limits, it maintains the shape of the piece during drying and offers me very «rustic» colors and textures, it’s a large piece and I think it’s more beautiful «in live» than in my photos.
Thank you very much dear Resa, I send you hugs and kisses … I am sure you will make a beautiful post, like all yours.
It’s a different piece, this dragon escapes of my usual style, but I think that sometimes clay has its own paths and uses me to express itself … in those cases I am just a tool for her 🙂
Thank you very much Inese, happy weekend!!!
Yes, you are so right. This piece of clay dictated the style 🙂 I absolutely love it!
I really like your blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. Fascinating and beautiful. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon 🙂
I love your dragons!
