2016 APRIL, figurative sculpture workshop with Naidee Changmoh (Thailand)

"For many years I've been working in a kindergarten. My artworks were inspired by the purity, spontaneity, fullness and happiness of kids… that beautiful energy influences me to create my artworks. I am Buddhist, The way to feel peace in my mind. I keep doing my work which relates to Buddhism, to keep my mind not too far from peace. I use cartoon forms to create my positive thinking artworks. Most of my works will give a feeling of peace, beauty and simplicity…" Naidee Changmoh

April 5-18, 2015 | SPIRIT OF FIRE: Soul of the Anagama with GYAN WALL & HILLARY KANE

April 5 - 18, 2015
Delighting in the element of serendipity and spontaneous beauty, this workshop will explore the natural glaze effects of atmospheric wood-firing in Gaya Ceramic Arts Center’s anagama (a small Japanese-style wood-fired kiln). Kiln-builder, Gyan Wall, together with in-house wood-firer, Hillary Kane, will lead this “Ceremony of Fire”, sharing their collective technical knowledge of the anagama, as well as their more personal spiritual experiences of wood-firing. It will truly be not only a ceramics workshop, but a transformative journey for clay pots and participants alike.

WEAVING IN CLAY & SMOKE Exploring Surface in Raku

Gaya CAC year of workshops opens 2015 with the return of the exquisitely talented Candone Wharton (USA). 

An especially special workshop is in store because participants will enjoy the added inspiration of seeing all of Candone’s creations during her residency here at Gaya CAC prior. 

Textures will highlight Candone’s signature basket-weave coiling techniques as well as her over flowing wealth of knowledge in Raku firing. 

Intensity in the studio will be balanced by adventurous and inspiring excursions into all the textile magic of Bali!
