I have a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of a grant to study
ceramics abroad to experience and learn more about that particular country=92=
s
art and culture. Ideally, I would like to work with another ceramic artist
but would also be interested in participating in a workshop. I have a M.F.A.=

in Ceramics, have been teaching ceramics for over 25 years, maintain a
ceramic studio and show my work regularly. I=92m pretty open but would have =
to
travel during the summer months. I=92m especially interested in Greece,
Portugal, Spain but would greatly appreciate any leads or suggestions in
other locations. Thanks! Anne

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity. I lived a year in Spain on a =20
Fulbright.
You might contact the Centro Agost through
"museoagost@dragonet.es"
My friend just sold it to a young couple from Agost. There are =20
apartments and a ceramics studio available but I can't say for how =20
much. There was an American ceramics working there. I taught =20
workshops there for several years.
The town use to be a pottery center but has gone largely to brick =20
making. 2 potteries in town still fire the traditional wood kilns.
Also try www.resartis.org for residencies in europe. I know there =20
are several in Spain.
In Italy check LA Meridiana. Pietro rents apartments and studio space =20=

during the year when workshops are not going on. Check www.pietro.net =20=

There is a teaching studio and an another studio plus lots of types =20
of kilns.
Have a great time!

Anne, I second Alisa's suggestion whole heartedly. If I were 20 years
younger, I would apply for a grant to Denmark in a minute. You learn as
much as you give when working with the potters who live there. Art
seems to be their second "language." It is everywhere.

Dear Anne
I would highly reccommend that you contact Denmark's International Ceramic =
Research Center at Guldagergaard on Zealand. You can apply for a residency=
there and come home with an excellent experience. They offer workshops al=
l year long, hosting a long and impressive list of ceramists from all aroun=
d the world. It is a great place and it is one my most inspiring contacts =
since I have lived in Denmark. Ann Linnemann, the director, was one of NCE=
CA's demonstrators this past year. It is a mecca for all ceramic related i=
nterests.
It happens also to be situated in a beautiful area by the water.
You can read about them http://www.ceramic.dk/

Good luck,=20
Alisa in Denmark
well, back in NJ from a great, great, great vacation.
