Christina Pitsch is an Artist-in-Residence at the European Ceramic Workcentre, in Oisterwijk, Netherlands, from from September 9 through December 2, 2015. She sent a few snapshots of the Centre, her studio, and her practice, as she experiments with new methods, soaking up as much technical knowledge as possible.
As she recently relayed, “I have a lovely studio with a fair amount of playful chaos occurring right now” She is taking this opportunity to shake up her practice, trying new methods and approaches.
As those who viewed her solo exhibition at Kingston Gallery this past summer, Fancied, may recognize, porcelain is one of Pitsch’s dominant mediums. In addition to working with other types of clay, she is also doing tests and looking for a new porcelain clay body to work with in the future. I’m sure she’ll see finished works come of her time there, but for now, here are some images of the spaces where she’s working, and a few process shots.
