Ceramics and Overglazing Course with Douglas Black
*Price per person

Serra da Lousã

From May 28th to June 6th, Cerdeira – Home for Creativity hosts the Ceramics and Overglazing - Infinite Skies course. Here, American artist Douglas Black shares a different approach to traditional Japanese ceramics, as well as his creative, technical and decorative process.

His works convey a cosmic sensation, which works through the application of colored glazes on black clay.

In this course, Douglas teaches participants how to dissolve boundaries through a playful approach, from building a sculpture together to creating cups and functional pieces made on a potter's wheel to use at the table.

In practice, participants explore layered techniques with the application of slip, scraffito, wax, enamel and overglaze. The use of symbols and brands is also encouraged so that they can develop their cosmic creations.

Douglas Black
Douglas Black
Douglas Black has been an American artist based in Japan since 1990, where he built a kiln and began an independent studio in 1992. His works embrace both function and wonder, celebrating the culture's mindful appreciation in the presentations of food, spirits, tea, and our flower friends. His sculptures explore the ceramic palette and other mediums, ground to the planet and reaching to the stars like those before us.

Douglas has taught workshops and exhibited his work all over the world. He will now share his knowledge and inspiration in Cerdeira.
