Learn to make pots the Nicaraguan way, in Wisconsin on June 11, 2016

Posted by Abby Silver

Join Potters for Peace and Nica potter Carlos Silva at a one-day workshop at Adamah Clay Studios in the Madison, WI greater metro area.

June 11, 2016 | 9 am to 8 pm | Fee: $75
Adamah Clay Studios of Bethel Horizon
4651 County Rd ZZ, Dodgeville, WI
This is part of the larger, week-long workshop: Beyond the Bauhaus

As part of the Beyond the Bauhaus Workshop at Adamah, Carlos Silva will give a one-day demonstration of his throwing and decorating techniques. Carlos lives and works in San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua, a town that is famous for the refined ceramic work that is done there. Working with coloured slips, low-tech burnishing (using stones, pieces of smooth plastic, or whatever else can be found) and low-temperature wood firing, the potters of San Juan de Oriente produce pots that rival high-fired glazed ware.

In the evening a representative of Potters for Peace will give a presentation on the traditional potters of Nicaragua and the Ceramic Water Filter Project.
