Ceramic Residence in Tuscany
At La Meridiana we have a long tradition of ceramic courses and residences. You may book an independent studio space and lodging for periods of one or more weeks in a safe, comfortable setting
The unique environment, history and culture offer powerful stimuli for those who wish to explore new dimensions. Artists, professional potters and ceramic enthusiasts are equally welcome.
Accomodation is on the grounds of the facilty or at very short walking distance.
Residents will enjoy a private studio or a private studio space in a shared studio.
Materials and Firing
Various clays, suitable for throwing, hand building or sculpture along with a tested array of glazes are available. Our staff will take care of the firings in agreement with the resident.
Many artists find this a valuable time to experiment and investigate new directions in their work. Visiting the near surroundings and taking field trips to art towns like Florence, Siena,San Gimignano, Volterra, and many other charming small hamlets will provide additional stimuli. Our staff will help to arrange transfers by taxi and train. For complete freedom of movement, you may consider to rent a car during your residency.
A group of friends may be interested in a retreat, spending time to work alongside and sharing their experience.
These concepts may successfully be accommodated at La Meridiana’s Nature Studio. Groups may rent the fully equipped studio space in the gardens of La Meridiana for a period of one week to two months. Find more information here.
Applications are ongoing. Please do send a letter of application including a description of the work you intend to undertake, the materials envisaged to use, a short CV and max 10 images.
