Symposium - Shima Kara Shima E -

A one day symposium that has at its heart conversations and then shared ceramic practice between Ashley Howard and Risa Oghi.

Howard had been drawn towards the surface patterns of a stoneware dish made by Risa Ohgi displayed at the 2011 International Society for Ceramic Art Education and Exchange Exhibition in Tokyo. It prompted a dialogue between the two potters that has emerged as an exhibition launched at The Leach Pottery, St Ives and now displayed in The Foyer Gallery of the University for the Creative Arts. The symposium will feature short lectures by makers and writers including Ashley Howard, Dr Bonnie Kemske and Professor Simon Olding.
