It was lovely to spend some time learning new throwing skills with Avelino Carrasco, great studio and beautiful company.
I had an amazing time in Faenza at the Arguilla International Ceramic Festival in September. It was a huge and varied gathering of ceramicists, ceramic demonstrations, companies specializing in ceramic materials and tools, and ceramics enthusiasts.
It was very rewarding to see my work in a high quality exhibition of crackling glaze pieces as part of the overall festival and to take part in this fabulous event. I had a lot of stimulating conversations with ceramicists from many parts of the world.
I had the pleasure to be invited by the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass of the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, to participate in the International Ceramic Mural 2016, as the city of Wroclaw has been proclaimed the European Capital of Culture 2016.
This project is going to become a unique artistic installation which shall be an extraordinary proof of the ceramics worldwide unity with the collaboration of renowned ateliers, and distinguished artists from all over the world including Asia, both Americas, Australia, Africa, New Zealand, and Europe.
