Robert Winter - Developing World Pottery

Robert Winter

Glass and Ceramics in Asia and South America

Over the last four years Robert Winter in partnership with fair-trade organisations both in the U.K. and abroad, has been working with ceramics and glass producers in some of the poorer parts of the world including Asia and South America.  Here he shared his design and technical expertise with producers in India, Peru, Bolivia and Vietnam, and visiting both India and Peru on a number of occasions to oversee design and technical developments, and to deliver workshops covering many aspects of ceramic production and sales. During this period he has sought to use his knowledge of contemporary ceramics design and production techniques to support potteries within these countries. Often accompanied by students from the University of Sunderland, Robert’s work has contributed to the sustaining of village potteries.
