The School of Ceramics LA MERIDIANA organizes residential Pottery Workshops and Ceramic Courses with internationally renown ceramic artists since 1981. The workshops are of one or two weeks and topics refer to most pottery and ceramic technical and aesthetical issues.
Throwing, handbuilding and decoration techniques, research and glaze technology, building and firing of kilns (wood firing, raku, soda & salt, majolica, stoneware, naked raku, terra sigillata, etc.) The different classes are intended for both the beginner and advanced or for the professional potter.
The Ceramic School is set in a restored 15th century farmhouse, in the centre of Tuscany, land of Etruscan and Roman culture, medieval architecture and renaissance splendour. An ideal place for the continual education on ceramic art and a meeting ground for international patrons willing to share Italian culture.
“Concreta”, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Sculpture held in Certaldo (Florence) with masters of modern ceramics represented each year, and the annual Clay Seminar complete our main cultural activities.
