Visit home of a Cypriot Ceramic Artist
This workshop is designed to share Sevcan's world of experience in ceramics and to inspire the visitors with her clay weaving and carving techniques.
As part of this experience, you will meet with Sevcan Cerkez, visit her house that is full of her sculptures in the middle of Cyprus's untouched nature and depending on what she is working on, watch demonstrations.
Her way of imaginative and colorful life view can be seen from the decoration of her house and her works.
There will be a mini-workshop offering an opportunity for anyone to create a unique and highly personal small piece of sculpture that can be taken back to home. The workshops are open to anyone and are tailored to suit all abilities. No sculpture experience is required. You will be amazed at just how creative you can be when applying 3-dimensional ceramic design and construction… and it’s great fun too!
Please note, all materials and use of tools are included in the price. We offer discounts to each additional person. Have a look at the pricing by the calendar.
Now, let's introduce our artist: Sevcan was born in Cyprus just before the the 1963 war in Cyprus when she was wandering around among the tents prepared for the immigrants, looking at people in astonishment. She names that moment when the facial expressions of people penetrated into our souls for the first time.
Throughout her life, she joined many group exhibitions and had solo painting exhibitions, draw caricatures issued in the local Yeni Düzen newspaper, joined many caricature exhibitions both in Cyprus and in overseas countries.
Her interest in the three dimensional art grew and in 2000 she met with ceramics. From the moment she took mud in her hands, she started making sculptures. She carried her caricature experience to her ceramics. She started with sculptures of about ten centimeters that were hollow inside and gradually increased the size to match the real human dimensions. And now, for more than 10 years, she has been making her large sculptures in the workshop in her house.
Her goal is to immortalize the Cypriot human mimics and characters that wars and other external forces couldn't destroy and to remind and share these values with people with her somewhat sorrow heart. She want to reflect problems of Cyprus and her love for nature and humanity with her ceramics, all of which shaped her soul like a handful of mud since childhood.
In addition to her interest in ceramics, she is interested in many parts of art, including singing at a local music band as a guest.
