Opening of the International Ceramics Duet Symposium, the joint project of Azerbaijan Ceramics Center and the Arts Council Azerbaijan, will be held on October 20 at Azerbaijan Ceramics Center.

The aim of the event is to study works of ceramic masters from different countries and foster experience exchange. The duet-symposium is important for demonstration of ancient ceramic production traditions of Azerbaijan, which in the first place is famous for its mud palettes and mud volcanoes. Sculptural ceramic works may have different forms of classic and avant-garde styles. Symposium invites professional artists and ceramic masters from CIS countries and the rest of the world.
