Studio di ceramica-Pottery. After a long period of experimentation and testing at DOCKS POTTERY weʼd like to show our ceramic work. The works we produce come from the use of local red and white clay as well as semigres like the earth of Castellamonte. We make all our own glazes from formulae we found in an old ceramics manual, many of which we have modified after extensive testing and experimentation. All our glazes are lead free and contain no toxic substances. Docks Pottery via Valprato n°68 10155 Torino Italia f.digiovanni@iol.it

The bags for Korea

On 2 August I am leaving for Seoul, to install the exhibition of Nathalie Djurberg a Swedish artist, in 2008 she had a solo show at the Prada Foundation, Nathalie was awarded the Silver Lion for a Promising Young Artist at the Venice Biennale in 2009.

I and my associates will expose video animations of Nathalie inside the Prada Transformer in Seoul. From 9 years I am working for my company ( Attitudine Forma) as technical manager of the works of contemporary art for the Prada Foundation in Milan and around the world. I work in korea last 10 days but I have programmed 4 days more to visit the Icheon Pottery Village where I'm going to see the Korean potters, the blog of "Bandana Pottery" gives much guidance to visit the potters, but unfortunately I do not have many days left. If any of you know or can tell me of potters in Korea I would be very grateful. I hope to make images from show you.

Ciao a Tutti a Presto
Ciao to all and see you soon

The Prada Transformer is a rotating pavilion with four sides, designed to host fashion shows, exhibitions and film festivals, which can be transformed by turning it around to change the façade and the floor. Based on the form of the tetrahedron, it offers a series of different façades: a cross, a rectangle and a circle, which may be rotated as required to create walls or ceilings.The pavilion, located in Seoul near the sixteenth-century Kyeonghee Palace, is due to open on April 25 for the "Waist Down" exhibition curated by Miuccia Prada in collaboration with AMO presenting a selection of the designers skirts from the early '90s to the present.The exhibition will stay open until May 31.The Prada Transformer was designed by Rem Koolhaas with Kunlé Adeyemi and Alexander Reichert and built with the support of LG Electronics,Hyundai Motor Company and Red Resource.

  2. That sounds like a great adventure, Filippo. Congratulations. The Welsh potter Phil Rogers has connections in Japan and, I think, in Korea. He might be a good one to ask about people to see. I'll see if I can get his attention online and maybe he can send you some names. Have a great time.
