    Description

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a great opportunity to learn about the business and practice of figurative ceramics, experience the idyllic setting of Penland and help build a place where creativity and wellbeing go hand in hand. The local area is rich with makers and outstanding options to experience the outdoors through hiking and rafting. I am also from Puerto Rico and can offer a full immersion experience of Spanish.

    I am a figurative sculptor living in rural North Carolina next to Penland School of Craft where I manage a property with a studio. In the studio I make and fire ceramic sculpture, teach visiting students throughout the year and create online courses, all activities I am looking support with that would engage a wide spectrum of skills. The property at large is over an acre and I would also like help with the construction of simple, comfortable dwellings and glamping sites for visitors and interns. The range of skills I can accomodate is pretty varied and in general includes having any (or more!) of the following: experience with ceramic sculpture, experience with anatomical modeling, video skills (filming, editing), construction skills and landscaping.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This area is stunning, filled with trails and a 3 minute drive from the river. There are innumerable studios to visit and because of the proximity to Penland School, a beautiful gallery and coffee shop to enjoy. We are also an hour from Asheville, a mecca for all things handcrafted and a fun, a small city to explore with good eats. There are shuttles available from both the Asheville as well as the Charlotte airport. A car is helpful but not necessary.
