Clay Modern

Clay Modern ceramics festival will take place in May 2004 in Gulgong, a small rural community in New South Wales, Australia, northwest of Sydney. The international ceramic event is hosted by Australian ceramics magazine editor Janet Mansfield, (Ceramics, Art and Perception, Ceramics Technical).

This will be the 6th event in the series of Gulgong ceramic extravaganzas. The program is being planned around sustainability in ceramics, keeping up-to-date in our preferred vocation: fire & kilns, form & aesthetics and clay & materials are all a part of this, and always with a view to promoting ceramics as an art form.

Each Gulgong event seems to generate its own momentum with participants coming from around the world to meet each other and take advantage of the friendly and productive atmosphere. There will be exhibitions, special happenings, a feast and fun. And there are some special guests to lead the lectures, demonstrations, discussions and exhibitions. They include:
  • Maren Kloppmann, Germany/USA
  • Eva Kwong, USA
  • Robin Best, Australia
  • Neville Assad, Australia
  • Tony Franks, Scotland
  • Peter Lange, New Zealand
  • Li Jiansheng, China
  • Cameron Williams, Australia
  • Steven Heinemann, Canada
  • Daphné Corregan, France
  • Michael Keighery, Australia
  • Jane Jermyn, Ireland

The conference will run from 2 - 8 May 2004. The cost per person is AUS$420. A student rate is available for AUS$300. If a teacher brings a minimum of six students, then the teacher will also be charged at the student rate. For accommodation contact the Gulgong Tourist Office on:
