60 kids…or even 70 kids through the studio workshop today…we made the base pots all week with a clay we didn’t know… possibly 5% grog in Jaipur body, and the kids made elements we added. 2 Government schools and a private school. The Akshara foundation of Mumbai funded my flight here for this specific project. Brilliant kids. Let’s hope the pots dry ok and are fired by the lovely students and potters we have met. The intention is to get the pots back to the schools. #aksharafoundation @mary__o__malley did the throwing and the fab @miray_mehmet_fontanelli @annabarlowceramics were constantly there as I led the introductions. It is so fulfilling to work with the government school kids especially who were the sweetest ever. We have been so busy we have hardly had a chance to post on insta, but plan to make up for it soon. #kidsworkshops @indianceramicstriennale

60 kids…or even 70 kids through the studio workshop today…we made the base pots all week with a clay we didn’t know… possibly 5% grog in Jaipur body, and the kids made elements we added. 2 Government schools and a private school. The Akshara foundation of Mumbai funded my flight here for this specific project within the Triannale….. the sale of one of my pots in NY earlier in the year funded the rest of the team. Brilliant kids in the workshops. Let’s hope the pots dry ok and are fired by the lovely students and potters we have met. The intention is to get the pots back to the schools. #aksharafoundation @mary__o__malley did the throwing and the fab @miray_mehmet_fontanelli @annabarlowceramics were constantly there as I led the introductions. It is so fulfilling to work with the government school kids especially who were the sweetest ever. We have been so busy we have hardly had a chance to post on insta, but plan to make up for it soon as @dan_fontanelli is here recording our project. #kidsworkshops @indianceramicstriennale #teamwork
