Current and Upcoming Shows
CUP: THE INTIMATE OBJECT XVIII
Charlie Cummings Gallery
October 7 - November 1, 2022
I’m so happy to have my kurinuki cups at Charlie Cummings Gallery in Gainesville, Florida at the international exhibition of ceramic cups. Hardly can wait when the show will be live on-line.
Each artist will submit five cups that celebrate this common, but challenging and intriguing form for potters.
Residencies and Symposiums
VANHA PAUKKU ARTIST RESIDENCY
May 1-31, 2023
The Vanha Paukku artist Residency will be my home for the whole month. Cultural Center Vanha Paukku is located in Lapua, Finland. It’s a center for culture and entrepreneurship, unique by both its surroundings as well as its history. “The center is located next to the Lapuanjoki river, and it is developed from old factory buildings. The area now has several galleries and museums, the town library, shops and offices as well as a cafeteria, a movie theater, the Music Institute, the Adult Education Center and the Lyijylanka – creative community.”
It will be my first time in Finland. I have no expectations and I'm really looking forward to having a different and new experience.
IAC CONGRESS, GENEVA
12th – 16th September 2022
The International Academy of Ceramics (IAC) will celebrate its 70th anniversary and its 50th congress in 2022. It will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, the cradle and headquarters of the IAC.
I was accepted into the organization in 2019 and during this conference I’ll receive my official membership diploma.
The central theme “Melting Pot: From the alchemist’s crucible to the cultural crucible” is rightly based on the international dimension of Geneva, a city where cultures, habits and politics tend to merge. This theme is also linked to IAC’s official partnership with UNESCO as a non-governmental organization, thus emphasizing the universality of the use of earth in its diversity.
