The Workhouse Arts Center, located in Lorton, VA has the privilege and honor to host “Earth and Fire” the 3rd Southeast Asian Ceramics Symposium (formerly Festival) in October 2014.

 

In Southeast Asia, ceramics has always played an important role in the functions of daily life.  Pottery has been present in every aspect of the Southeast Asian civilization’s culture. It was often used to study the way people lived, and was found anywhere from bowls on the dinner table to icons for religious practices. Even today, the tradition continues.   Over the past few years master ceramic artists from the ten nations that comprise the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) [Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam] have gathered to celebrate and share their art with the world.

This event will feature the works of 35 leading ceramics artists from those ten nations. The pieces will be on exhibit in the Vulcan Gallery-W16 from September 12 to October 19, 2014.
