'Insta-Famous' Tortus Ceramics at Guild of Objects

23rd January, 2018

The internationally-acclaimed ceramicist with almost A MILLION followers is running a talk and demonstration at Guild of Objects in Melbourne, this week.

If ‘celebrity ceramicists’ exist,  is up there. The American potter owns in Copenhagen, and he’s the only ceramicist we know with almost a million Instagram followers.  The master craftsman creates beautiful, large-scale pots, and has cleverly harnessed his immense social media following with incredible imagery and videos of his highly-skilled (seemingly impossible!) wheel-throwing process.

Local maker and ceramics community maven Chela Edmunds of Takewei first heard that Eric would be coming to Australia through one of her students. ‘I saw that Eric had taught some workshops at Choplet studio in New York, the studio where I started my pottery journey,’ Chela says, ‘it made me feel connected, and want to welcome a fellow potter and traveller into my studio space!’ the next night she sent him an email and an invitation to visit her students, and he said yes!

Following a handful of sell-out workshops at Chela’s studio, this Thursday night Eric will be giving a talk and pottery demonstration at Guild of Objects in North Melbourne.

Be sure to buy tickets ASAP… they’re sure to sell out quickly!
