In August, Kohila Symposium celebrated both the 20th symposium and 20 years passing from the first anagama-kiln constructions. The unusual format brought together 12 Estonian artists selected from the previous symposium participants. Artists created large format works in their home studios or in the facilities of ARS Ceramics Centre in Tallinn. Communal firing in Kohila was shared together with the members of Estonian Ceramics Association.
Kohila Symposium has become a tradition, an important event both in the local and international scene, gathering contemporary knowledge and skills around different wood-firing techniques while functioning as a mediator between the professional community and among the general public. Throughout the years the symposium has hosted 196 artists from 31 countries.
Many thanks to: Kohila Township, Kerako OÜ, ARS Ceramics Centre, Estonian Artists' Association and the ARS Art Factory, Kohila Educational Centre, Estonian Ceramics Association.
