Ceramist colony 2008 - The sun sofa
14 to 17 August 2008
This year we are going to build a sculpture, 'Sofa of the sun' that is going to become a part of are sculpture park at the atelier Janja Gora. We are going to build it with paper-clay. In the years to come all those monumental works are going to be dedicated to the magic forces of nature. After a 'Japodes totem' we carry on with 'The sun sofa'. It is a big sculpture piece that is going to be build according to the drawing and plans. Each participant is going to put her/his personal mark on the piece.
A part of this year workshop is a use and preparation of the paper clay. Made of the paper and (often) left over clay, this clay has a good strength and is flexible enough to build sculptural pieces and tiles. We are going to prepare this clay for use, and are going to learn al ins and outs about it. And of course, we are al together going to have quality time and great fun.
