The workshop has equipment for all stages of ceramic production: from preparing the clay to firing it, from working at a potter’s wheel to painting finished products, including spray techniques. Two programmable furnaces with a volume of 60 and 300 litres allow artists to simultaneously fire objects of different sizes. The workshop has a vertical rolling machine that processes large volumes of clay.
