27 Raku and Tuscan fun
Pietro Maddalena - www.pietro.net
July 1st - 7th, 2012

Throwing and hand building. For all


This workshop will provide opportunities for the development of skills for both beginners and advanced students. Making will be on the wheel or hand built. Tuition will consist of a series of demonstrations followed by personal help. There will be many demonstrations in throwing and hand building including the revision of basic processes and variations on the vase derived from a cylinder, bowls, cups and plates. Students will be free to choose the direction of their work. We will study the use of glazes to obtain strong and brilliant colours trough the raku firing process.
The workshop will encourage experiment and provide an introduction to many aspects of the making, glazing and to the raku firing process.


Cost 860 Includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials and firings.





La MeridianaPietro Elia Maddalena studied ceramics at the West Surrey College of Art & Design in England. After two more years of work at Dartington Workshop, he returned to Italy where in 1980 he established a studio in Certaldo, near Florence. Pietro is the founder and director of the International School of Ceramics LA MERIDIANA located in Tuscany, Italy. Also instructor and maker he says of himself : " I am totally and continuously interested in the process of making. I see the craft object as a projection of the human spirit and the culture in which it was nurtured. In elaborating concept, material and process, my ultimate goal is the expression of beauty through sophisticated and sensual forms".
