ABOUT THE TEACHER: Gyan Daniel Wall
Gyan is a skilled and passionate clay worker, wood-firer and kiln builder with over 20 years of experience devoted to the craft.
For Gyan this process is a form of alchemy, a co-creation with the natural elements in order to produce objects of function and beauty. He approaches it as an “intuitive science”, engaging in this process whole-heartedly with an attitude of playfulness, acute observation, deep contemplation and an air of non-attachment. He delights in making simple and beautiful functional wares that feel good to use. His sculptural forms are of spiritual significance and speak of universal creation.
This workshop is strictly limited to 8 people maximum so please book early to avoid disappointment.
