with Gaya Ceramic

Seductively shimmering surfaces, burnished to a soft sheen as satin as skin... Naked Raku. Technically more complex in possibilities than meets the eye, this two week focus study will endeavor to unveil the mysteries, and thoroughly explore the length and breadth of Naked Raku. From finding suitable forms hand-built or wheel thrown, to burnishing, applying resistant slip, patterning surfaces in the simplest or the most intricate detail, smoking, and polishing-- each participant will become a budding expert in every nuance of practical knowledge, enough to commence an exploration of a lifetime. Gaya Ceramic's vast archive of Naked Raku production samples will enhance and inspire everyone's palette of possibilities...
Open to all levels of experience.

10 Vessels by TORTUS
with Eric Landon

Join TORTUS Copenhagen Studio founder, Eric Landon, on his Bali debut. Sure to be an inimical experience, this pottery legend will lead participants in making 10 vessel types—imbuing each vessel with the comprehensive and unique technical and aesthetic approach he applies at the wheel to make all of his work. The workshop will explore a series of vases, bottles and bowls, introducing tricks and techniques that will allow each participant to get more out of their wheel with just a few simple tools. Likewise, close attention will be paid to surface detail toward the perfection of glazing forms for the final gas firing.

Open to all levels of experience.
