Organized by the "Werkschule e.V." 2015 the International Ceramics Days Oldenburg in the North of Germany will take place for the 33th time.

On the 31 of July, the Ceramics Days start at the „Werkschule", where two ceramic-artists from the USA, Marc Leuthold and Martin McWilliam, will host the one-day "Ceramic Portrait"-Workshop. Both artists are highly awarded and shown in exhibitions and galleries around the world. The "Master-class" on the 30 of July offers a unique opportunity to alive the ceramic-stars at work. At the Intensive-Workshop you can gain an insight in special operation methods, backgrounds and processings.
The weekend of the 1th and 2th of August is all about the International Ceramics Fair on the square in front of the Oldenburg State Museum for Art and Cultural History. Chosen by a competent jury out of nearly 350 applicants 124 potters, ceramists, designers and artists from Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Swiss and Czech Republic offer their top products. One third of the exhibitors come from abroad - about 60.000 people interested in ceramics are visiting the market every year.
The market program gives exhibitors the opportunity to submit work for a theme exhibition "brandneu - brandnew" in the Oldenburg State Museum for Art and Cultural History, at which three awards are given by a jury, in addition to an award chosen by the public. Also, for the 7th time, the "NEW CERAMICS" prize, an award for outstanding achievement in the field of ceramic art, will be given. The winner of this prize is also decided by a jury and will be invited the following year for a solo-exhibition in the museum. This year it will be Carima Duchamp from France.
