15 Soda firing in contemporary Ceramics
Instructor: Pietro Maddalena
    
Type: Throwing - Advanced
Date:
April 16 - 24, 2010


The workshop is open for advanced or professional potters and ceramic artists who wish to expand their aesthetic and expressive vocabulary and acquire tools and methodologies for the assessment of their work.
During the studio sessions participants will produce thrown or hand built work in stoneware. The chemistry of the soda  firing process will be explained and discussed thoroughly, to provide an understanding of the combustion taking place in the soda kiln,  increase through the practical experience.
Furthermore there will be exploration of  communication via the web to promote work, to find further learning tools and to communicate with the broader ceramic community. The set up of a web-forum dedicated to the contents of the workshop will give participants the opportunity to experiment new ways of communication. Through participants contacts with potter guilds in various countries will be established, to create a transeuropean network on ceramics. The workshop is taught in English.

The project has been granted funding by the European Community and funding covers travel, accommodation, materials and teaching.
