The Ceramics Congress starts tomorrow!

Okay so i really didn’t mean to drop off over the past few weeks, my apologies! But I promise I had a really good reason – I’ve been working behind the scenes on The Ceramics Congress which starts tomorrow! The event goes for 5 days, is jam-packed full of workshops from international artists, talks, fun challenges, artists markets, film fest and a HUGE online exhibition of 88 artists. I literally can’t name it all there is so much.

So I really hope you’ll join us this weekend. We already have over 5000 attendees signed up from around the world!

And it’s only $10 if you buy your ticket asap and seriously where else can you get this much ceramic fun for $10???

And if you can’t make it this weekend you can buy the replays for life for only $59 – still ridiculously cheap!!!



The house of ancient Greek pottery: Arslan Eyce Amphora Museum … The museum, which gathers amphorae attached to fishing nets, off Mersin, Taşucu and Antalya, exhibits more than three hundred works. The amphoras, which shed light on the lively commercial relations of the period with their diversity of buildings, were used in the transportation of olives, oil and grain. Turkey’s first and only museum of earth figures: Taşucu Amphora
