Event Description : Delhi Blue Pottery Trust and Sanskriti Foundation present "Ceramic Fest Delhi 2017". 

It’s time to immerse yourself in the magic of the potter’s art; the mesmerizing  swirl of the potter’s wheel; the beauty of the glaze: CeramicsFest, the annual  celebration of studio pottery organized by Delhi Blue Pottery Trust and Sankriti  Kendra, returns to Anandgram for the seventh time.  

This event, which is possibly the largest gathering of ceramic artists in one place in  the country, offers a range of exceptional products shaped by the delicate touch  of skillful hands. Numerous workshops give visitors, old and young, the  opportunity to work with clay; to experience for themselves the joy of  transforming a lump of clay with their hands. The direct interaction between  visitor and the artist facilitates a greater understanding of the art. Participation of  schools is encouraged so that children can be exposed and sensitized to this  wonderful medium and, perhaps, even benefit from its therapeutic qualities.  

The chief guest at this year’s CeramicsFest is the internationally acclaimed  Indonesian ceramist, Dr.Ponimin Hum, whose works will be exhibited at the  festival. Dr. Hum will give a talk on the various designs and techniques that can be  seen in Indonesian ceramics from the classic to the contemporary. He will  demonstrate, and conduct a workshop on, Indonesia’s traditional, figurative  ceramics that use the hand building, pinching and coil ornamentation techniques.  

As always, the workshops are open to all visitors. Join Manjari Sharma as she  shares her insights on mask-making, the well-known ceramist couple Monica and  Ambar Agnihotri who are holding a workshop on hand building, or the Raku  workshop conducted by eminent ceramist Leena Batra.  There will also be a film screening of Sardar Gurcharan Singh’s life compiled from  archival material. Shot in the seventies and eighties, it recalls the hardships,  endeavors and achievements of the early years and their fruition in a major  movement in contemporary ceramics.

The CeramicsFest is an integral part of this effort. It  has, over the years, promoted interaction between ceramic artists from all over  India and also from around the world.
