September 9th – 19th 2015

Throwing and Glazing. For all



The workshop will be concentrated on improving throwing, trimming and finishing skills.
There will be plenty of demonstrations and practical individual help. More experienced throwers will be encouraged to increase the scale and scope of their work by making composite and altered forms. We will be using a white stoneware clay produced for La Meridiana.
The title of the course refers to the type of firing which will be at 1260°C in neutral, or oxidation atmosphere. This will open possibilities for unique colour and pattern. Slide shows will help to understand diversity of personal styles and the versatility of this firing process.


Cost: € 1500
The workshop fee includes:

  • tuition (class is 6/7 hours per day with 12 hours studio time)
  • materials
  • lodging in double room; single room on request at extra cost of € 140
  • welcome dinner
  • welcome breakfast
  • a freshly prepared Tuscan lunch with wine on the working days


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”.
