Tile making is a unique medium for both artistic expression and useful projects.
In architecture tile work has been one of the main characteristics of most cultures and in recent times they have been extensively used as self expression in murals and panels of the most diverse nature, scope and destination. Fireplaces, bathrooms, public art, kitchens, garden sculptures and art for most applications are continuously commissioned.
Tiles can be made out of any grogged clay, can be figurative or abstract, flat or in relief, small or huge, glazed or unglazed and fired with any technique.
In this workshop we will  explore, design and make a variety of work using a series of different techniques in both the making and in the firing for two and three-dimensional work.
Cost 1.000 € for two weeks of attendance
Cost 600 € for one week of attendance

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”.
