Im a potter from North of Kurland, Latvia.  About 5 years ago along with my partners we established organization "CIPARNĪCA"  Tals` keramik`. Our target is to keep and study Latvian, especially Kurland pottery traditions. Mostly I do traditional pottery (wood fired), but I like trying new techniques as well. I have done experiments with RAKU and some other firing techniques. I also cooperate with other potters to keep this unique trade alive. I want to participate in this workshop, because i find it very interesting to learn more about different European folk patterns and how they can be put on use in ceramics. I hope that this workshop will give me a lot of new ideas and inspiration to use folk different ornaments in my works in order to keep the cultures alive!
