For the love of art and ceramics ,help us repair our kiln .
Kiaora my name is Zehavit,I'm a potter and pottery teacher,its become my life mission to share the love of it with as many of you as possible ,weather you drink from a hand made cup,or make your own ,
I've been working with school children ,adults ,community groups and individuals with intellectual disabilities for the past 15 years,running workshops and initiating large projects and exhibitions.
All this whilst battling with my kiln ,a ceramic oven if you like ,
Its basically like driving an old vehicle and it's time to put it in the garage,
The kiln needs to be repaired,
Prior to covid 19 I was due to visit local schools and fire 200 children's work ,to make a permanent sculpture of their favourite memory ,
Please help us continue this kind of work for the live of art.
2,200 kiln refurbishing, 800 transport the kiln to Rangiora and back
Our kiln is back from repair 3 July 2020
Thank you for all the kind and generous donations,
Our kiln is back ,our project permenant memories ,depicting favourite childhood memories in clay is slowly being fired in my kiln and the kiln in broad bay school,
Thank you for making it possible, the work will be shown aug 28th at the Robert piggott gallery, in the meanwhile heres a preview of the big works awaiting firing,Zehavit
