In Topic: Ceramic Opportunities In Europe?

25 November 2015 - 05:15 AM

Hi again Dennison. I would suggest writing a proposal, a summary of what you wrote above, and send it to the following European schools or studios:



 http://www.lameridiana.fi.it/(to Claudia Bruhin or Pietro Maddalena)

 http://www.officinesaffi.com/(to Francesca Salvatore)

 http://www.cretarome.com/(to Lori-Ann Touchette)


France (they are near where you are at the moment):

 http://vallauris-ioa.com/via/?lang=en(to Sandrine Rousseau)

 http://www.air-vallauris.org/(to Dale Dorosh)

 http://www.ecole-cer...ue.com/contact/(to Ariane Coissieux)



 http://eltornbarcelona.com/(to Martin Loew)


England (UK):






Germany and Switzerland: I am not sure yet whether a residency possibility is an option there.


Ask them in your email letter whether they can help you with ideas and addresses of other schools or studios, if they can't give you what you are looking for in their own school.


Keep me informed please. Best of luck!





PS: Just got another opportunity you can look into. It's in a pdf file. I hope I can attach it here...



In Topic: Do You Eat Off Your Own Pots Everyday ?

25 November 2015 - 04:37 AM

Great question Mark! Too bad I didn't think of it for my QOTW! :lol: Next time you have a great idea for a topic, drop me a line....


Since I don't do dinnerware, no, we don't eat out of selfmade pieces. But I am drinking 1x tea out of every Chawan I made, to test whether the feeling for the lips, and whether the form and weight are all right.



In Topic: Qotw: • What Are The Ions Of Creativity?

Tyler: thank you very much for the poem. :)  And it IS cool that you share it with us, and it is also interesting because one has to read it twice or trice to get the meaning. Great contribution!


Paul: challanges in life are important!


Min: well, your ions aren't very poetic, but down to earth. But also struggle in life can get us inspired! ("Now how the h.. shall I pay the next mortgage payment"...)


Vinks: thank you for sharing Montapert's thoughts. Yes, visualization and believe are my ions too! If we don't believe that we can do what we wish to do, we have already lost! Isn't that so?!

In Topic: Qotw: Is Your Artistic Practice A Product Of Genetics Or The Environment?

24 November 2015 - 11:29 AM

John and all, this is so interesting! Not for the first time do I read a sentence like this: All I know is that when I touched clay in a ceramics 100 undergrad elective course in college.......  I had found "home".

It happened to me too, at the "methusalemian" (I just invented this word!) age of 45. (John, I was an interior decorater and then a musician too..).


Maybe the clay is looking for us?!

In Topic: Qotw: Does Your Work Have A Feminine Or A Masculine Look?

24 November 2015 - 11:21 AM

Tyler: the story of the Freddy Mercury performance is a great way to show that: how we see something doesn't have to be the way somebody else is seeing it. And so: you can wedge "yourselve" into the clay as long as you like, if somebody wants to see a feminine part in it, they will and they do. I just find it interesting how we do it unconsciously....


Lee: yes, it's, in the end, up to the viewer. But isn't it interesting to go through our work and look for femininity and masculinity? .... and think about the time we made that particular piece? Maybe the time "when" we did a piece is telling us a lot about the shape we decided on?!


Giselle: well, that is another possible answer to the topic question: maybe we make what we think X, W or Z would like? And I love to read that your hubby "ordered" a special planter for his boss. That is a big compliment from him to you IMO!
