Japanese wood firing ceramics with Masakazu Kusakabe in Cerdeira, Portugal

This is a unique opportunity to completely immerse yourself in art and creativity, gaining deep knowledge in an international group, restricted in size, guided by professional, experienced artists who have a lot to offer.

This is our special week to immerse in ceramics and Japanese culture. To work and learn with Sensei Masakazu Kusakabe is a privilege.

Getting to know the history of Japanese ceramics, the ash glazes, making tea bowls on the potter’s wheel or small sculptures from clay and deliver them to the power of the wood fire.

Yes, in this ARTIST WEEK you have also the opportunity to fire your art pieces in our SASUKENEI- SMOKELESS KILN, designed by Masakazu Kusakabe and built in Cerdeira in 2015.

The master dominates the fire and the art of wood firing like no one else due to almost 50 years of wood firing experience. Although in each firing he’s still looking for new challenges!

Beside his deep knowledge of ceramics and wood firing, Japanese ceramist Masakazu Kusakabe is a true master in every sense. His workshops are not limited to pottery, but also include other elements of Japanese culture, including tea ceremonies, sushi making, the “Wabi Sabi” philosophy, and music. In short, workshops with Masakazu Kusakabe are full days, complete with hard work, learning and exchange, that bring out the best of each one of us, as an artist and a human being.

Born in Miharu/Japan in 1946 where he still lives and works, his curriculum is filled with international exhibitions and with the implementation of a smokeless ceramic kiln, designed by him, all over the world.

Upcoming dates: 22 July 2017 – 28 July 2017
