Slow coiling vessels with Gunilla Maria Åkesson
Masterclass Workshop

The meditative power of ceramics

2.5 hours Min 10 people50 euros per person

The slow coiling method used by Gunilla Maria Åkesson serves as her daily meditation. In this workshop Gunilla shows participants how she makes her thin vessels, which are hand-built in red stoneware containing paper fibre by coiling the wall and modelling it to make it thin and even. She builds just 5cms each day in order to maintain the thin feeling of the vessel walls. The vessels are usually glazed several times between each firing at 1,200°C. Gunilla also gives workshops and talks in other locations, in which case, travel and accommodation are extra. This masterclass is on request.
