"Exchange on Earth "
The Hill Tribes' Ceramic Project

Paul Beckrich arrived from France two months before his exhibition at Insii Thai House. During this time he not only prepared his sculptures, but also shared his knowledge with 10 students of the Hill Tribes' school of Maechan (Rongrian Suksa Song Kraw Maechan). The experience has been extremelly rewarding for both the students and the artist. While Paul certainly gained a great experience out of this cultural exchange, the children also learned the technique of "tranforming earth in to metal" from Paul. The program did start with the construction of a high temperature oven, followed by sculpting techniques and using metallic enamels.
