I have spent a couple of weeks in Latvia participating in a ceramics symposium and visiting different Latvian regions and exploring the arts and crafts of the Baltic. I am immensely grateful to my Latvian hosts for a very warm welcome & their expert guidance, and many thanks to Grundtvig for their financial support.

On this blog I will be uploading a few pictures of the highlights of places, arts and experiences that I have encountered on my journey.

To begin with I will show you some images of  Riga,  where we were based. We had some time to explore the beautiful medieval streets and numerous Art Nouveau buildings. In the following  posts I will  firstly show highlights of excursions out of Riga, and secondly  focus on Latvian  ceramics.


I hope it gives a good impression of Riga & Latvia ceramics, I love the whole trip! Feel free to add comments.

    En la foto de la Academia la escultura parece una replica de BOTERO

    !SORPRESA msyúscula. No sabia que Riga tuviera tan increible arquitectura y arte!La verdad es que era una gran desconocida para mi. Preciosa ciudad por lo que has captado de ella. La escultura del caballo en la que estás sentada es alucinante.
