Sculptural Planter – Making Pottery Workshop with Rita Gudiño of Tahanan Pottery

Speaker: Rita Gudiño

Create your own sculptural planter under the guidance of renowned clay sculptor Rita Gudiño. MA. RITA B. GUDIÑO, MFA, started her academic career at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts (UPCFA) in 1993, while working as a designer for a ceramic manufacturing and exporting company. In 2000, she participated in the prestigious and longest-running International Ceramic Arts Workshop in Tokoname, Japan, where her passion for ceramics was further honed. She propelled the founding of the UPCFA Ceramic Studio in 2008 and directs its programs and operations.

Her magnum opus, LUAL, a kiln art that associated firing as art and metaphor for birthing, is considered a first in Philippine Art History and received recognition in both academic and international field of ceramic arts. She was invited to re-build and fire LUAL at the International Ceramics Festival, Wales, United Kingdom in 2015, where it was considered the highlight of the festival for its spectacular performance firing.

Learn the different clay hand-building techniques (pinching, coiling and slab making) and decorative techniques (applique, sgraffito, incising, stamping texturing and painting) that have been used for centuries to produce beautiful works of art.

Sculptures produced in the workshop will be fired in the Tahanan Pottery workshop and will be ready for pick up or delivery after 4 weeks from the workshop date.
