Ceramic Goddesses Workshop in Barcelona

Come to make your own ceramic goddess! You can create your own design or I can guide you along. Since ceramics requires some time to dry before going to the kiln, you will have to come back another day to pick up your figurine. We will begin with a guided meditation. The workshop will be Saturday July 27th 2019 from 10.30 am to 1 pm h in Eva-Ceràmica workshop, calle Asturias 95, in Gracia neighbourhood in Barcelona. Metro Fontana L3 or Joanic L4. Send me an email if you are interested hola@monicamorenoart.com or whatsapp +34671924525

Wild Women, an exhibition by Monica Moreno in Barcelona

I will show my latest illustrated ceramics, sculptures and paintings at Sagrades Tannines in Barcelona, from March 10th to April 2nd. The openning will be on March 10th at 1 pm. The address is Passatge Simó 20, Barcelona, and the nearest metro station is Sagrada Familia.

The main theme in my work through the years has been Women. And lately I’ve also been very interested in the sacred, intuitive and spiritual. In my exhibition you will find Pregnant Goddesses, wild women, tree women, mermaids, madonnas, shamans, bird women…

I usually work without previous sketches, directly on the canvas, or on the ceramic plates. Depending on the technique Iim using I can work on it until I like it or I just leave as it is. 

See you at the openning!

 

Raku in Pau Gargallo Art School

I’m studying the Ceramic and Pottery Course at Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny Pau Gargallo in Badalona, the teacher is Daniel Salinas. We will learn wheel thrown, Raku and image transfer.

These are the pictures from our first Raku, experience. We made the slips and glazes by ourselves, pure chemistry and maths! The pots need to be bisque fired first, we used the slips and glazes afterwards. Then we fired then again, this time faster and in a smaller kiln until they got to 970º Celsius. We took them out of the kiln and put them in a closed container with sawdust for about 5 minutes, and cool them in water.

It is quite a magical experience with surprising results. Looking forward to next one!

Ceramic little dishes

I’ve been making little ceramic dishes with my drawings lately. I painted them straight with the brush, no sketches. Sometimes I use sgraffito too. The main theme of my work is women, it has always been like this since I was little. I’ve tried to paint something abstract and I came up with kind of tribal designs. In this case I used red clay but I’m using white clay for the little dishes. First I make the dish and when it dries I apply the underglazes, then it goes to the kiln (bisque fire) and once it comes out of the kiln I apply the glaze and it goes to the kiln one more time. You can find them in my online shop or ask me to make one for you.

The meeting of the magicians

I designed the poster for THE MEETING OF THE MAGICIANS, and I will also perform (with 100 more people!). For the poster I used watercolours and painted and scanned everything on their own, not together, so I could have flexiblility to move every element later.
