Kervansary: Ceramics Symposium, Battalgazi

I spent 9 days as an invited artist to a ceramics symposium called Kervansaray Bulusmasi.  It was located just outside of Malatya, in Battalgazi.  We all made a wall hanging for a street called "Art Street" in the historic area of town, close to the kervansaray.

Turks love to take pictures

This kiln has no spy hole?  What?

And the computer is broken?  And there are no cones?  No spy hole, REALLY?

The Silk Road

The group of artists I worked with- checking out the purple basil.

The town officials (mayor/ governor) were really involved also walking quickly and being followed by many cameras in tow.
