"The main purpose of the symposium is to show visitors all kinds of pottery making, design, and decoration," says Viera Kleinová, the main organiser of the event.

Six experts from all around Slovakia will present and sell various decorative pieces of pottery; like pots, vases, plates, cake molds, and candlesticks. Drahoslav Chalány from Pezinok will show the process of throwing large-sized items.

"Chalány will demonstrate a difficult skill that he has mastered - making very large plates," says Kleinová.

"We have the best majolica [ceramics] and pottery makers in Slovakia. They are people who make the products the traditional way," she says referring to the fact that some of the ceramacists who will be in attendance have a ÚĽUV Master award, which is given to craftsmen whose pottery is of the best quality.

Also included in the event will be a series of documentary films about pottery, to be shown on June 26, and a conference on traditional and modern pottery production, which will take place on June 25.

"The conference will include a number of lectures and will serve as an introduction to the symposium. Experts on historical ceramics will talk about today's ceramics as well as about its traditions," says Kleinová.

Ceramics Days will take place in the courtyard of crafts institute ÚĽUV, at Obchodná 64, Bratislava. The event will run on June 25 from 14:00 to 18:00, on June 26 from 9:00 to 18:00, and on June 27 from 9:00 to 16:00. The conference on June 25 runs from 10:00 to 13:00. Admission is free.
