Following best practices as recommended by health professionals regarding the Covid-19 virus, the North-West Ceramics Foundation has reluctantly cancelled our upcoming lecture by Martina Lantin originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 17, 2020. We are committed to our public responsibility to help keep our community safe, and therefore have elected to avoid scheduling events with large gatherings. In our efforts to promote ceramics in British Columbia, we appreciate your support and look forward to re-scheduling Martina’s visit in October or November.

The North-West Ceramics Foundation is pleased to announce Martina Lantin as their next speaker at a free public lecture Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at 7:30 pm. The lecture will be held in the Rennie Theatre, room B2160, at Emily Carr University, 520 East 1st Ave, Vancouver, BC.

She has completed residencies in the United States, including Watershed Centre for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, ME and the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN, and in China, at the Liling Ceramic Valley Museum in Liling, Hunan Province.

​Lantin has exhibited widely across the United States, and her work has been recognized in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions as well as in a number of publications internationally. She has taught workshops throughout North America and currently teaches in Ceramics at the Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary, Canada. Committed to the joys of working in earthenware, Lantin explores the history and boundaries of functional ceramics through objects and mixed media installation.

Martina Lantin’s work articulates moments in ceramic history. In her talk, “Migration/Adaptation,” she will explore the development of a practice centered in utilitarian form that reflects the ceramic past through both installation and pottery production. Her talk will take place at Emily Carr University, 520 1st Ave, Vancouver, in the Rennie Theatre, room B2160, on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at 7:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
