Ceramics Course with Eddie Curtis

Cerdeira

The New Horizons Ceramics Course celebrates an approach to ceramics through observation and nature and is designed for participants to discover a new relationship with clay, a passage that could take their work down new paths and profound changes.

Eddie Curtis' ceramic work highlights and incorporates references to landscapes in a wider sense, using a range of techniques to arrive at his composite forms and their textures.

He demonstrates how to combine simple techniques to obtain a seemingly complex form that leaves no guesses as to its elementary origins. Discovering the potential of this process opens doors to experimentation, new discoveries and inspiration for a path of its own.

The wood-firing in the last days of the New Horizons Ceramics Course at Sasukenei - Smokeless Kiln further reinforces this approach to Eddie Curtis' ceramics. The high temperature firing will enrich his pieces through natural ash glazes, ash deposits and new textures.

Schedule

  • First day: 4pm - 7pm
  • Days after: 10am - 6pm, with two hours lunch break *

*The schedule is flexible on the days the kiln firing starts and ends. During the firing in the Sasukenei - Smokeless Kiln the students will be distributed by turns.
