A simple and brilliant idea to be realized at school with clay slabs: colored tiles imprinted with different shapes of pasta. Farfalle, penne, fusilli or spaghetti become interesting tools to create texture on the smooth surface of the fresh clay. You can create abstract designs, patterns or small landscapes … giving space to the imagination. To color the tiles after the first firing I used the Engobes: I applied a layer of black over the entire surface and then I removed it with a damp sponge so that the black color have been left inside of the engraved marks. Then I colored the surface and then brushed the glaze transparent and eventually I proceeded with the second firing.
