Karissa Chase is a Townsville girl who fled the city after graduating from high school, moved to Brisbane to study ceramics and hasn't looked back. After deciding to be a potter at the young age of 16, Karissa pursued her dream to do so. After graduating art college in Australia, America gave her the opportunity for love and the chance to introduce her ceramic work. Working with either the wheel or a rolling pin, each piece is not only cute, but how fortunate Karissa is to do what she loves.

karak ist ein Ornament. karak ist auch die Firma von Sebastian Rauch und Thomas Rösler. Gemeinsam mit Sebastians Mutter, der Keramikkünstlerin Martha Rauch, produzieren die beiden Designer in Handarbeit Keramikfliesen mit grafischen Mustern. Seine digitalen Muster würden erst durch die Fehler, Risse und Flecken, die durch den Rakkubrand entstünden, lebendig, so der Grafikdesigner Sebastian. Thomas Rösler ist Produktdesigner und auch ihn fasziniert der unkontrollierbare Prozess. Jede Fliese wird anders, ganz besonders. www.karak.at

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

PechaKucha Event in Lonstrup
In this post you'll find a few photos (all taken by Mathies Brinkmann) from a recent PechaKucha event held in the city of Lonstrup. It was produced in partnership with the PechaKucha Night in Aalborg series, as a sort of ambassador program to bring PKN to that city. From what we hear, it was a clear hit, and there's a chance that a regular series might start up in Lonstrup now. There are more photos to see in this Flickr photoset, and here's a report from PKN Aalborg organizer Annette Scheibel.The event in Lønstrup went so well, the small cinema was full of an enthusiastic audience (about 40-50 people, there's isn't room for more), and there were good, moving, thoughtfull presentations from local people.I made a PechaKucha about PechaKucha, and the local people hosted the event beautifully, following the concept of the PechaKucha idea. There were really good and funny presentations about paleontology (birds in stones from the dinosaur era), the impact of advertising and the means on our daily life, a ceramic Danish-Walish lifestory put into art with the inspiration from nature present, nature also came through the painter from New Zealand's very personal poetic presentation, a Danish South African writer put her life story into 20X20 format with the help of her two grandchildren, and a graphic/ theatre technician tried to invent creative toys out of cardboard.
Innsbruck's New Culture Center, Baskets and Pots, and Jumping in Tokyo
Presentations Konstantin Ronikier is the organizer of PKN Innsbruck and in this presentation (in German, from PKN Salzburg Vol. 12) he talks about a new cultural center in the center of Innsbruck. Konstantin was in charge of renovating the previous building into a space where people could meet, discuss, and produce events. Richard Wilshusen is an archeologist, and in this presentation (from PKN Longmont Vol. 6) he explains the material culture of baskets and pots. He explores the idea that the functionality behind the basket evolved in the design of ceramic pots. Posters and flyers Today's new poster addition to the Tumblr blog comes our way from Gisborne, with the city's Vol. 9 happening this coming Friday (June 22) -- the event will take place at the Dome Cinema. Here's a peek at the new flyer series that we're launching here in Tokyo for our PKN series -- with our next event, Vol. 93, happening on June 27. The photography is by Michael Holmes, the design by Luis Mendo, and we plan on producing more flyers that follow the same "jump" motif. Calendar There's one PKN happening tonight (June 18), and it's a Vol. 1, in the city of Launceston. Tomorrow, you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2 and PKN San Diego Vol. 15.
Great #11 at Platform 4 in Aalborg
This time Huset where I work organized PechaKucha together with a bunch of experimenting creatives in the area of cultural projects, art & technology at Platform 4 in a former Tivolipark Karolinelunden in Aalborg. 9 excellent projects and artistic processes were presented for an audience of 100 people, and we had been allowed to show the trailer from the experimenting danish orchestra Efterklangs new video and cd "The ghost of Piramida" as a finish-off at the evening. The movie will be shown at a screening at Platform 4 later on this month. Lene Nielsen has made it a life task to travel around Mongolia to register their unique filt carpets, processes of making and patterns, that are related specificly to each area. Her work is documented at the danish museum Moesgaard, and it is knowledge that probably wold have been lost without her work - so maginificent to listen to. Theatermanager at Teater Nordkraft Jakob Højgaard Jørgensen and actor Thomas J. Clausen explained about theor travelstudy in Africa dramatising the author Jakob Ejersbo Eksile & Liberty books and how to create and develop a theatrical language and living characters based on the book and on meeting the people that knew the main character in Africa. Brilliant and interesting presentation. Projectmanager and anthropologist Signe Leth talked about the international cultural project IMAGES 2013, that is taking place september 2013 in different cities in DK and invited people to take part, join and help organizing the exiting event. Architect Jeppe Fink is involved in a group that is raising money and are working to transfer an old ferry to a floating culturalboat, thatis to be situated in the east harbour of Aalborg, and this exiting project is also open for all creatives of Aalborg to be part of. After the break excellent danish-south african artist Inge Tranter presented her artproject "The creative windowwsill", and there were put out paperbags with starterkits for the audience in socalled "unfortunate-bags" - a marvelous and fun presentation about finding inspiration, where you are. Christian Fumz has resently moved to Aalborg and gave an inspiring presentation about his work to connect artists in need of spaces to work with people who have empty buildings. The project givrum.nu /givespace.now also collaborates with creative alike projects in Berlin called citylink - veery exiting! Helena Sokol a very young artist has her first sole-ekhibition in Husets (non-profit) Gallery exhibiting bones and meat in photos, paintings and sculptures. She explained about the process of making sculptures out of bones and her fascination of them. Jakob Stig Nielsen has a long past experience as freelance graphic designer and explained about how to "survive" both artisticly and having a well established business. jakob is also cityorganizer of PechaKuha Night in Hjørring. Last but not least: Anna Johannsdottir jumped in on the last slot at 7.30 (!) in stead of Platform 4 manager Bo Nicolaisen, who had to cancell of a very good reason: he became a father of a beautiful son :-) Ceramic artist Anna Johannsdottir had a visit from 2 splendid photographers from Cyprus, and they did experiments with clay on her body and face. Beautiful photos and amazing process was described and the evening truly finished in the PechaKucha spirit. Efterklangs trailer put a dot on it Thank you for a wonderful evening - see you at Huset on april 10. :-) Annette
A collectively presented Pecha Kucha
At our March 2013 event, PKN Coventry Vol 12, we tried a new twist on the improvised Pecha Kucha presentation. To fit with our theme of "The 10 things I would do to make Coventry a better place", I prepared 20 slides - images of aspects of Coventry. In the interval, cards showing one of these images were randomly handed out to people in the audience, with the request that they come up with one (20 second) 'thing' inspired by that image to add into the presentation. Here is an short version of the list of the things the audience came up with: 1. (image of the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum) Open for longer and later. Still free entry and expand the programme of groups using the space. 2. (image of the Cathedrals) Open up the recently discovered 14th Century crypts and let people see the bodies! 3. (image of the Ellen Terry Building) Bring back the cinema for the public! 4. (image of alleyway by Druckers off Hertford Street) Make sure the lights always work and it's safe to use. 5. (image of ring road flyovers by sports centre) Get the chicken knitters (as mentioned in Richard Tomlinson's PK earlier) to knit some socks for the ring road legs...(yarnbombing!) 6. (image of the river at the back of Palmer Lane) Open up the river. 7. (image of back of sports centre) I'm amazed that these used to be steps up to a restaurant! 8. (image of the side of St Mary's Guild Hall) Keep the heritage weekend. 9. (image of County Hall) More independent, and less w*nk bars! 10. (image of timbered former tourist info building next to Holy Trinity) Should be Tourist Info and a tourist destination. 11. (gate near Bishop St) This is near the Refugee Centre. The Refugee Centre has been welcoming refugees for more than 10 years, but it had to remain hidden for a long time. The refugees that have settled here over the last 10 years are now making a huge impact in the city. Reinvention, positivity and social value. 12. (image of the precinct) We should all be 'Poogilantes' to prevent people from stepping in undesirable poo on pavements, always carry a chalk to circle, label and help others avoid! 13. (image of stairs near Coventry Market) Step into Coventry Market - Coventry is full of interesting buildings, spaces, nooks and crannies. Go and explore - and champion - them. 14. (image of the circular cafe in the Lower Precinct) Create a public painting - or guerilla weaving workshop here. Cover it in colour. 15. (image of Cullen ceramic mural in the Lower Precinct) Give more jobs to glass blowers, artists and other people who put the colour in. 16. (image of public artwork in Shelton Square) Make a hidden art trail - so people can find these. 17. (image of former Evening Telegraph building) Offer this building to artists and craftsmen... 18. (image of Whitefriars Monastery from the subway) Crowdsource some citizen photos of Coventry - what its people see as beautiful - and use these as the images on official council and other establishments websites. An ever-changing selection which showcases current events and developments and maybe even engenders civic pride! 19. (image of graffitti) A paint amnesty. 20 (image of the cross on the ground of the Priory Place visitor centre garden) Coventry obviously needs more pirates - there's buried treasure here that needs digging up....!
