Excursion is about 40min during which time I show you the workshop and explain the process of different firing techniques (electrical, gas and wood kilns) as well as glazing methods (I work with several special effect glazes) and of course the different materials (clay, stoneware and porcelain). There is also a demonstration on some part of the process (either wheel throwing, trimming, sometimes glazing).
Drive 15.7km from Bauska towards Eleja and 1km after the sign pointing to “Jelgava/Jaunsvirlauka” turn LEFT off from the main road onto the gravel road- signposted as "Keramikas darbnīca" with a brown sign. Now just straight 2.8km until a house signed “Urštēni”.
