Lidia Boševski workshop - Texture database - Clay and wood

The fourth open workshop 
of Association Terracotta continues the work on the project by Lidia Boševski

In the fourth Terakota workshop we worked with wood textures (branches, sections, bark)
Participants created prints for the database of textures and the prints
that will be designed so that they can serve as a ceramics tools.

Each student created an object inspired by a form from the nature
 with wood texture applied on it.
Soil and wood are inseparable, so the clay welcomes cellulose – if joined, they can form a new material. Wood/cellulose we may find in the paper, material ubiquitous in our everyday life. 
At the end of this workshop everyone created a sample of paper from wood pulp found in the woods and recycled paper.

Lidia Boševski workshop - Texture database - Clay and stone

Report from the 2nd workshop
which was held at Lidia Boševski atelier Owl in December 2013.
With this 2nd workshop Lidia started her project under the working title
“Database of textures from the nature”.
Lidia’s idea of a database of textures developed over a period of ten years, through intense being in nature, collecting various materials (bark, branches, seeds, stones, leaves), photographing, using specific fragments as tools, and organizing the workshop “Ceramic herbarium” in the Botanical garden in Zagreb. In order to bring the collected material into a meaningful whole, Lidia has decided to create systematically, over a longer period and with the help of the Terracotta workshop participants, a database that would serve as a reminder, a creative connection with nature, as inspiration and a potential collection of working tools. 
The workshop opens the database with selected stones and their graphics.

Lidia Boševski workshop - painting with clay

Last year in October I attended first organized workshop at Lidia Boševski atelier. 
I meet Lidia two years ago and from the first moment I fell in love with her work and I fell in love with clay. 
From there it all began.

This workshop was organized as a part of a Teracotta Association (Udruga Terakota).
Terracotta is a nonprofit association established to encourage artistic experiment,
research in materials and exchanges in the field of ceramics and related arts.
It was held by Lidia Boševski and her collaborators Sanja Lovrenčić and Nataša Ninić.
