Handmade tiles dvd Provides practical information, a touch of history and contemporary tile, an array of color how-to info Author: Giorgini, Frank
The Handmade Tiles DVD by Frank Giorgini is a visually exciting and thoroughly comprehensive journey into the art of tile making. Intended for the beginning tile maker, the accomplished artist and the tile lover alike, Frank guides the viewer through each step of the tile making process, with detailed and easily understood explanations, and clearly presented how to demonstrations. This DVD is the live companion to Frank Giorgini's highly praised book Handmade Tiles (Lark Books 1994), winner of the 1995 Tile Heritage Foundation Award. Volume One reveals the process of creating an original carved relief tile model, the layering technique, plaster mold making and production of the resulting clay tiles. Also demonstrated is direct carving into plaster and the use of a hand tile press to produce low relief tiles. In addition, surface decoration with colored clay inlay and shellac resist is disclosed. These techniques are all performed on the clay in its pre-fired stage. Volume Two continues the process of creating a handmade tile. Effective drying techniques, electric kiln operation, and loading and firing a bisque kiln are demonstrated. A general overview of glazing is discussed along with demonstrations of underglaze painting, waxing and glaze dipping applications. Loading and firing a glaze kiln is followed by a presentation of finished tiles by various contemporary tile artists. Volume Three reveals the techniques used to construct artist Frank Giorgini's innovative tile making hand tools and devices. Fabricated from simple, readily available materials, these tools add a new dimension to the carving, forming, trimming, cutting and waxing of tiles. Step-by-step construction of a studio tile press and several mounting and display devices are demonstrated. Volume Four completes the tile making process by guiding the viewer through the installation of finished tiles in a custom designed tabletop. Master tile setter Arnon Zadock joins Giorgini in a step-by-step demonstration of this finished tile application. Tools, adhesives, layout, setting, grouting and cleaning are examined in detail during this final stage of the tile maker's art.
