During my recent trip to The Kingdom of Cambodia, I had an opportunity to make work and interact with several Khmer potters at the National Center for Khmer Ceramics Revival (NCKCR) in Siem Reap. While there, I learned more about the approach to three dimensional surface decorations unique to the Khmer culture.

The first art of fire
December 2014
Once upon a time, or somewhere in the vicinity of 10,000 years ago, Neolithic man hit upon a rather novel idea. ‘No more this nomadic life, ’mused our big-browed ancestor, noting the calluses erupting sorely from the soles of his naked feet. ‘Time to dig in and settle down.’ So it was that this one-time wanderer finally sat, twiddled two sticks together in idle distraction, and promptly discovered fire (sort of). What followed shortly thereafter –the hardening of clay pots by heating them in a simple oven, or ‘kiln’ – is known to this day as ‘the first art of fire’.

Khmer Ceramic Centre & Fine Arts Centre in Siem Reap.
Wo traditionelle Handwerkskunst und bildende Kunst zusammentreffen
August 2012
Siem Reap ist Angkor, und Angkor verbindet man eigentlich eher mit seiner ebenso gewaltigen wie eindrucksvollen Tempelanlage, dem größten Tempelkomplex der Welt, und weniger mit einem Khmer-Keramikzentrum mitten in der Stadt. Eben dieses betreibt aber dort der aus Belgien stammende Serge Rega. Ursprünglich aus dem Catering Service in Brüssel kommend, war Keramik immer schon seine stille Leidenschaft.
