The two weeks ceramics symposium, hosted by The Art Academy of Latvia, gathered together 25 artists from 10 countries - Latvia, Turkey, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, UK, Russia, Belorussia, Moldova and Finland - in a Zvartava Castle, Latvia. During the symposium we created works from porcelain and stoneware. In the end of the symposium the works were fired in two big wood kilns. The selected works were exhibited in the castle during summer 2018 under the topic 'Light'.
