We welcome you at the atelier with (Turkish) coffee or tea and some homemade snacks. After a short introduction about clay, ceramics and our atelier, we start by making some basic, simple forms like birds, fish etc. Next, we try clay slab building techniques on a coffee/tea mug or any other object you would like to make. For relief decoration we use some traditional weaving patterns, or we walk around the atelier to collect plants, leaves and other forms or shapes to imprint on our works. If we have some time left, we will try working on the potters wheel. While working, we exchange our ideas and views of the ancient cultures and their art, of nature and our relation to it through our own creativity. The whole atmosphere is relaxed and timeless, giving us all the space we need to (re)discover our ancient relation with the creative being within ourselves. The works you make can be sent to your address after they are dried and (bisque) fired.
Il tuo host
I am a ceramic artist and founder of Intc. ceramics centre Atelier Janja Gora. For me, ceramics and clay were always more than just a form of artistic expression. It is a way of thinking, way of observing and expressing the world around us, a way of life. For more than 20 years now I have searched for this ideal form and enjoyed the process of carving a piece of art out of a handful of earth (clay). I have participated and have organized many international exhibitions and art workshops. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and creative thoughts with other people, helping them to discover the artist in them selfs. Because, life is a manifestation of this creative energy. Come on by and feel a bit of this magic. Let us share these moments together.
