Medalta International artist in residence program

The Historic Clay district part I
The residency will take place at the Shaw International Centre for Contemporary Ceramics located within the Historic Clay District in Medicine Hat, Canada. The dates for the Summer Residencies are July 3rd to August 23rd, providing 8 weeks for intensive examination of ideas related to the material and process of ceramics!! I am here now in Canada for about a week and I've already meet some great people, we have seen a lot, and I am beginning to feel at home in my new studio.

Now back to work!
Set against the dramatic cliffs of the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat, Alberta, the 150 acre Historic Clay District was once home to some of Canada’s most important clay factories, including Medalta Potteries, Hycroft China, National Porcelain and Alberta Clay Products. Today, this history is being preserved with the unique Medalta Potteries site providing the setting for a living, working museum, vibrant education centre, a Reception Gallery, and a 12,000 square foot contemporary ceramics studio, The Shaw International Centre for Contemporary Ceramics.

  2. The cups are made at Medalta Potteries, but I don't know who designed it. They are really great don't you think?
