Eligibility: Applications are open to all ceramicists and visual artists from across the world. We are looking for emerging or midcareer artists who will benefit from the explorative possibilities of working with Cotto’s staff, dialogue and bonding between residents and Cotto’s community of artists, and access to Cotto’s professional ceramic studio. Successful applicants will be chosen based on the quality of their past work, investigative merits of their proposed project and viability of their participation.

The paid program covers a fully-equipped shared pottery studio, production materials including clays, glazes and oxides, kiln firings, feedback and assistance from our team of specialized ceramicists.
