I am serving as the demonstrator liason for the International Ceramics Festival in Aberystwyth, Wales at Aberystwyth Arts Center. The festival is hosting a terrific group of talented and well known artists from around the world, who have come to demonstrate and lecture about their work. Artists this year include: Chris Gustin, Jeff Shapiro and Edith Garcia from the US, Nina Hole from Denmark, Daniel Allen, Sandy Brown, Peter Hayes, Regina Heinz, Tom Barnett and Jack Doherty from the UK, Caroline Cheng from China, Jean Nicolas Gerard from France, Shozo Michikawa and Maskazu Kusakabe from Japan and Zhao Hua Yang, Zhao Hua Long and Ning Fa You from Jingdezhen.
The conference is incredible so far: jam packed with interesting lectures, talks, films and demonstrations. Three, count 'em, THREE, kilns are being built on site. More to follow on those as they fire!
