Two week workshop at Gaya Ceramic Art Center

  • Gaya Ceramic Jalan Raya Sayan Bali, 80571 Indonesia (map)

A hands on workshop involving both the hand-building and throwing techniques he uses in the making of his tea ceremony bowls, tea pots, water jars, ikebana vases and sculptural objects.  Participants will learn to create rich surfaces inspired by the natural world and will experience brushing kohiki slip on clay slabs and stretching the slabs to crack and distort the surfaces, applying a coating of clay mixed with sand onto the surface of wheel thrown pieces and then altering them, and mixing air and other materials into the clay body and then tearing off the clay and/or cutting with a wire to create shapes-- among a myriad of other techniques.

Sorry, the 2017 workshop is now FULL.  Please contact Gaya Ceramic Art Center for information about upcoming workshops with Akira.
