After a more than two-year hiatus due to Covid, the North-West Ceramics Foundation is thrilled to finally be able to present Martina Lantin as their featured speaker. Martina will present via Zoom on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at 1pm PST. The presentation is free and open to all, but registration is required. Please see below for information about how to register.
Born in Montreal, Canada, Martina Lantin received her Master of Fine Art degree from NSCAD University in Halifax. She has participated in residencies in Canada, the United States, Germany, Iceland and China, including the Watershed Centre for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, ME; the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN; and the Liling Ceramic Valley Museum in Liling, Hunan Province, China.
Martina has written for various ceramic publications and edited the 2017 summer issue of the Studio Potter journal. Her work has been included in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions internationally. Recent participation includes Borderline, the Alberta Biennial 2020 and The Pots and Passion of Walter Ostrom at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
Martina Lantin is an Associate Professor at the Alberta University of the Arts.
Martina mines the history of ornament and pattern to explore the mutation and boundaries of functional ceramics through vessels and installations. More recently, her exploration of adaptation and change has engaged emergent technologies as a method of production. In her talk “Role: Function and Object,” she will share new works produced during recent residencies in Iceland and Germany and discuss the evolution of her practice. Her talk will take place on Zoom on October 16, 2022, at 1pm. Registration is required.
