【陶心瓷语——China in my heart#1RobertIAC(国际陶艺学会)的故事

2018930日,对于我校国际学院在读硕士Robert同学而言,是一个非常特殊的日子。在这一天,他收到了来自IAC的会员聘请证书。经过一年的努力,Robert终于得到了IAC的认可,成为了IAC的第一位乌干达会员。收到聘书,这位非洲留学生显得非常开心,他说:“这个真的非常棒!我很开心可以成为其中一员。”

 

 
     (IAC:国际陶艺学会(International Academy of Ceramics,英文简称: IAC)是联合国教科文组织的一个非政府组织官方合作机构。国际陶艺学会代表世界当代陶艺的最高水平,学会的宗旨是通过世界陶艺交流,鼓励文化融洽。)

 

September 30, 2018 is a very special day for Robert, a graduate student of JCIIS. On this day, he received a certificate of membership from the IAC. After a year of hard work, Robert was finally recognized by the IAC and became the first Ugandan member of the IAC. Having received the offer, the African student seemed very happy. “this is really great,” he said, “I'm happy to be one of them.”

 

 

201610月份,Robert认识了IAC前主席Jacques Kaufman。当时,Robert正在国际学院第二工作室进行自己的作品创作,两人随后就聊起天来。虽是刚认识,RobertJacques Kaufman却聊得非常投缘,Jacques Kaufman了解到,Robert很喜欢陶瓷,对陶瓷创作尤其感兴趣,于是他向Robert介绍了IAC并推荐其加入。在201610月的湖南醴陵国际陶瓷产业博览会上,Jacques KaufmanRobert再次相遇,并就加入IAC一事进行了长谈。

When Robert met IAC’s former Chairman, Jacques Kaufman, in October 2016, Robert was working on his own work at the second studio of JCIIS. Later, the two people chatted. Although they had just met, Robert and Jacques Kaufman chatted very closely. Jacques Kaufman learned that Robert loved ceramics and was particularly interested in ceramic creation. So he introduced the IAC to Robert and recommended to join it. Jacques Kaufman and Robert met again at Liling International Ceramic Exposition in Oct. 2016 and had a long talk about joining IAC.

 

 

Robert还在非洲读本科的时候,经老师介绍,了解到陶瓷这种古老而流传四方的艺术,他顿时便对陶瓷产生了浓厚的兴趣。Robert认为,陶瓷是一种神奇的艺术,它可以让人将自己的思维、想法倾入其中,可以表现自己对事物的所思所想。就他自己的作品而言,Robert说道,“在他的作品里面,有许多是包含了他的经历、他对这个世界的思考,还有他对自己的家乡的记忆以及情感。”

When Robert was an undergraduate in Africa, introduced by his own teacher, he learned ceramic (An ancient art that has spread all over the world).At that time, he was very interested in ceramics. Robert believes that ceramics is a magical art that allows people to pour their own thoughts and ideas into them, to express what they think about things, “In his own works”, Robert says, “Many include his experiences, his thoughts on the world, his memories of his hometown and his feelings.”

 

 

 

 

2017年,经过长达一年的准备、创作以及考核,Robert成功加入了IAC。申请加入的过程不可谓不艰难曲折--不仅要有两名IAC内部成员的推荐信,还要求申请者创作提交不同风格的多件作品。2018930日晚,在台湾莺歌陶瓷博物馆举办的2018年度IAC大会上,Robert正式收到了他期待已久的会员聘请证书。

In 2017, after up to a year of preparation, creation and assessment, Robert successfully joined the IAC. The application process can not be said to be easy and a doddle, which not only does he have to get a letter of recommendation from two of the IAC's internal members, but also require applicants to create multiple works of different styles. On the evening of Sept. 30, 2018, Robert received his long-awaited certificate of membership at the 2018 IAC Congress at the Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan.

 

 

 

     Robert激动地说到:“收到这个聘书,我非常开心。IAC是一个很好的交流平台,这里有来自世界各地的696名陶艺家,对陶瓷艺术各有见闻,可以给我提供非常好的交流机会,去了解不同国家、不同地区对于陶艺创作的风格、特色,并从中学习多样化的陶瓷艺术,让我得到提升和进步。”

Robert said with excitement he was very happy to receive the offer. the IAC is a good platform for communication. There are 696 ceramic artists from all over the world who have different experiences and opinions of ceramic art. It can provide him with a very good opportunity to communicate, to understand the different countries, different regions of ceramic creation style, characteristics, and learn a variety of ceramic art, so that he can be promoted and improved.

 

2016年来到景德镇陶瓷大学攻读陶瓷艺术专业硕士学位的Robert也即将面临毕业。Robert说:“毕业以后我计划着开一个自己的陶艺工作室,一方面用于自己陶艺创作,一方面给那些有志于陶艺创作的青年提供训练和帮助。”他认为,这样不仅有助于自己的陶艺创作事业,还可以为热爱陶艺的年轻人提供一个就业机会。另外,如果有机会的话,他还希望自己可以继续攻读博士学位。

Robert, who came to Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute in 2016 to pursue a graduate degree in ceramic art. He says, “I plan to open my own studio, which on the one hand, is used for his own pottery creation. On the other hand, can provide training and assistance to young people who are interested in pottery creation.” He believes it will not only help his pottery creation career, but also provide a career for young people who love pottery. In addition, he expect to continue his PhD program if the chance.
