Nelson Clay Week

Join Janeen for an enriching two-day workshop that begins with an insightful field trip around Nelson, exploring the region's offerings. The workshop will focus on the development of glaze samples and delve into Janeen's research on New Zealand rock glazes. Following Barry Brickell's advice from Coromandel, participants are encouraged to come prepared with essential equipment for the field trip, including jars, small scales, a mug bisqued using high-fired stoneware (available upon request), a notebook, comfortable walking shoes, sun protection, water, and a picnic lunch.
--
The industrialisation of both materials and products over the last century has taken us so far from source that we forget that the objects we cohabit with have a relationship with the land around us. However, potters have developed and maintained a relationship with their local environment for sourcing their materials.

The Taranaki landscape has been a rich source of glaze materials for Janeen Page. Working with one glaze for over 15 years gave her an understanding of her local geology and constituents in glaze making. In 2020, further study into New Zealand rock glazes expanded her knowledge of the regional palette available to us throughout New Zealand.
