The Nature Studio
Morning sun and the golden light of sunset illuminate La Meridiana’s newly created ceramic studio in its gardens. A strong sense of quietness unfolds as you work accompanied by the sound of songbirds, the whisper of leaves, and the call of frogs amongst the shade of majestic oak trees.
The fully equipped studio may be rented from one week up to two month as an independent working space. It can accommodate a group of artists and friends who may want a getaway retreat or to work on a common project. The studio, set in the Tuscan countryside will inspire any creative passions. Teachers, who specialize and work in community studios may tailor their skills and abilities and combine study with vacation for their students or colleagues.
The space is equipped with tables, shelves, a kickwheel and electric wheels to accommodate throwing and handbuilding. The La Meridiana Noborigama wood firing kiln stands next to the Nature Studio; therefore, the space lends itself beautifully for wood firings and pit firings projects. Gas and electric kilns and further equipment are available at the main studios of La Meridiana, which is at very short distance.
Lodging
Groups will be hosted in independent housing at 10 minutes walking distance from the facilities. Groups may also elect to rent housing of their choice independently.

Materials
A range of low and high fire clays and glazes are available. Prior to their arrival, each group will discuss their needs.

Food
A delicious, freshly prepared lunch with wine and dessert will be served Monday through Friday by our chef. Local grocery shopping for breakfast and evening meals is available in Certaldo. One restaurant is at walking distance and many other nearby restaurants or pizzerias are good options for exploring the Tuscan cuisine. A morning and an afternoon coffee break is included. Self-catering options are available.

Length of stay
The Nature studio may be rented starting from minimum one week, up to one month or more.

Getting around
Shuttles to nearby town Certaldo, for shopping or from where to take the train will be provided two times a week, at agreed times. Visiting the near surroundings and taking field trips to art towns like Florence, Siena, San Gimignano or Volterra may provide welcome stimulus. Our staff can help to arrange transfers. For complete liberty of movement, groups may consider to rent a car or a van.
