Online Talk – 2nd February 2021, 7pm – 8.30pm

David Louveau – “Change”


David will be talking about his life experience; his coming to Sweden; and of “CHANGE” as such. The passage from one state to another that I live from the place of my creation in the values of the life I lead with my partner now.

In the first part of is talk, he will show a video of his workshop and kilns, and talk about his techniques (a video because there is no signal in his workshop, and his kilns are outside). Then he will talk (live) about the ethos and emotions that inspire him, and take his work above the level of just making. During this part he will also be using some of his tea ware, and talking about the philosophy of tea and what it means to him.
