Blizzies Ceramic Art & Design was founded with a huge passion for the Ceramic Arts and a big wish to share the joy of claywork with with the rest of the world. Sylvia Sinel started up Blizzies after many years with a colourful dream about a vibrant studio space for exploration & and production, as well as a place where people can come along and "have-a-go" at pottery in a supportive enviroment.
In the Studio you'll find a mix of functional design and sculptural pieces. Focus is on high quality craftsmanship and there are no rules in the creating. Most pieces are unique one-of-a-kind and new ideas and concepts will be under constant exploration.
Blizzies offers one-on-one tuition in wheel throwing and handbuilding, occasional weekend workshops and various commission projects. Contact Sylvia on 022-0466029 or info@blizzies for booking & more info.
The name Blizzies is made up from the word Bliss meaning great joy and happiness, or something contributing to happiness and well being.
