Barro Tonalteca

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

During this residency we will find passion and dedication for two prehispanic, Mexican clay making traditions from Tonala Jalisco. These techniques  have been part of the Jimon family for six generations. Their artisanal lifestyle has taken them around the world sharing their knowledge as well as the history, culture and talent of their hometown.
“Barro bruñido” (Rub Clay) technique comes from the rubbing a pyrite stone on the shaped and painted pieces of clay, and as the last step they are burned in a traditional open sky tonaltecan style wood kiln.

“Barro bandera” (Flag Clay) derives this name from the colors of green, white and red (colors of the Mexican flag) and isan almost forgotten technique,  thus making the Jimon family more eggar to share it with the world.
With pleasure and honour the Jimon family will share their ancestral knowledge at Anima Casa Rural to all artists interested in this residency.

Prizes: 

Exhibition in the annual ACRAR show.

Visitor Center Artist Camp Residency & Creative Retreat

Share

Category:

Country:

Visitor Center Artist Camp is a short-term, low-impact Artist Residency site, situated on a 120-acre camp bordering the Ottawa National Forest in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Explore creative practices influenced by the surrounding natural environment and focused on sustainability and self-sufficiency, while working and living communally in this beautiful wilderness environment.

JULY 27TH - AUGUST 9th 2019, with Optional Extended Work Session, August 9th - 16th.

Immerse yourself in our Local Clay Workshop, digging, hand-processing, and firing the local clay on site; work on a project in Wood and learn from a lifelong logger, timber-framer, and DIY master at his Sawmill; or propose an Independent Project that can be supported by VCAC’s rugged setting, sustainable focus, and adventurous attitude.

Previous years’ artists have cast recycled aluminum into molds made from the local clay and sand, created site-specific installations in the forest, traveled the area capturing photographs of the old mining and logging towns nearby, brewed traditional Finnish-style beer, worked on video projects, and painted images of the inspiring UP landscape.

The programming for VCAC is intended for both personal and collective growth. We will share our skills and ideas with each other though demos, presentations, and campfire discussions.

The VCAC is a great place for the creative growth of an advanced artist looking to step out of their normal routine or experiment with new materials and techniques, or for the emerging artist looking to learn new skills. Adults of all creative backgrounds, experience levels, and fields of practice are encouraged to apply. You must be at least 18 years of age.

Space is limited! We have 12 spots for 2019. Applications will be reviewed in the order received. Deadline for all applications is June 1st.

Deadline: 
06/01/2019
