Innspiration and study tool during the Corona lock-down
The Corona lock-down prevents us temporarily from visiting and consulting the large ceramics library at the Benyamini Center which covers the field of international ceramics in its many forms. In normal times it is an inspiration and study tool for our students and visitors.
These days we're more than usually dependent on the internet. It gives us a chance to find and enjoy interesting material, some of which inspired me, and I would like to share with you. Maybe it will inspire your future projects.
- CERAMIC ARTS NETWORK: youtube- this site provides us with short videos of a large variety of different ceramic techniques.
- GOLDMARK GALLERY VIDEOS: This Britain based gallery has been representing for years some of the finest internationally renowned potters, and has made a series of excellent artist videos for a number of them, tracing their ceramic trajectory and their personal insights, and showing the development of their personal styles. I picked out two makers whose styles are very different from each other, one British and the other American:
Randy Johnston (USA): youtube
Walter Keeler (Britain): youtube
Till we are able to meet again at Bet Benyamini, I hope you enjoy those suggestions and find much more interesting material in the virtual world of the net.
