砂铸工坊

Last Saturday a sand casting workshop was held at AIVA Gallery & Studio, Shanghai.  The workshop was led by Chilean/Italian jewellery artist Maria Ignacia Walker.  

上周六AIVA Gallery & Studio进行了一场由智利/意大利首饰艺术家Maria Ignacia Walker主持的砂铸首饰工坊。学员们在老师及助教的带领下,尝试了砂铸工法,制作了各种不同形态的首饰或小物件。

The workshop started with a small chat over tea and snack.  Maria introduced herself to the students, and talked about sand casting and her pieces done by various casting techniques.  Everyone had a chance to see and feel Maria's elegant and free-spirited jewellery pieces.

工坊开始前,艺术家及助教先与提早到达的学员茶叙。Maria近几年受邀在世界各地的艺术学校/机构教学及创作,她与学员分享了她的一些创作历程,并且向学员展示了她使用各种铸造方式制作的作品。

After tea time, it's time to get our hands dirty.  First Maria showed the students the process of sand casting, then students follow the steps to start making their own.  The sand used in this workshop was brought back from the UK, as the sand we found locally did not deliver the desired result.  About 90% of sand from each use can be reused again.

工坊开始,老师先向学员示范工作的流程。本次使用的铸造用砂来自英国,因国内目前较难找到效果合适的砂子。一次铸造完大约有90%可以回收再次使用。学员们按照老师的指示,填砂、夯实、印模、修模、开槽、刷滑石粉、合上模子,最后用纸胶带把模子固定。

Then it came the time of fire and heat.  The metal(silver)was melted with soldering flame.  Because it's difficult for beginners to tell whether the metal liquid was ready, this step was mostly done by the artist and her assistant.

接下来就到了炙热的部分啦!用高温焊枪将金属加热成液体,再倒入刚刚制作好的砂模。由于学员较难拿捏高温液态金属的状态,这个部分主要由老师操作。

During the whole process, Maria would give advices and remind students of some details that required attention. 

过程当中老师会对学员的想法提出建议,并提醒学员注意事项。

The half-done pieces taken out from sand mold would still need to be filed and polished.  We needed to make sure the piece was confortable to wear while maintaining it's unique texture.

从模子里取出的半成品,还需要挫修及打磨,在维持表面肌理的同时,也要确保佩戴的安全性与舒适性。

Students all delievered amazing results.  It has been a warm and fruitful winter afternoon.

这次工坊学员们都发挥了巧思,制作出专属于自己的首饰物件,度过了一个硕果累累的温暖冬日午后。
