Ceramic Paint / Book

December, 2016

Ceramic Paint / Collection Cornwall shows 108 colors that came into being after thorough research into raw materials, and the way in which they manifest on stoneware, earthenware and porcelain.

This book contains information on 12 raw materials found in Cornwall, England. These raw materials are made into a base material for paint, suitable for coloring stoneware, earthenware and porcelain. The result is a color pallet of 108 colors.

The raw materials originate from the porcelain, tin and copper industry in Cornwall. Up until the nineties people in Cornwall depended on the mines for their livelihood. Copper, tin, silver, lead and many other metals were extracted here. Today, only the porcelain industry is still active. The landscape is filled with the remains of these mines. Mounds of the materials discarded by the original metal industries form extensive color areas touching each other.

The developed color pallet shows the richness of the materials in the landscape in which these industries were once active. Apart from these colors this book also offers information about the origin and deposits of the raw materials and the diversity of their applications.
