The idea of being able to work on clay while on a vessel on the ocean sounds very appealing and it would be interesting to see how one’s work would be affected by such an experience. There are several levels available, decorating bisqued-fired ware or working with wet clay. The wet clay option is the way to go for us. Beginning in 2003, Princess Lines began offering Ceramics@Sea on it’s Island and Coral Princess ships and “specialized wheel-throwing classes.” These and other classes were such a hit, they became of the shipping line’s ScholarShip@Sea programs and the first in the industry to have “seagoing pottery kilns” and now all Princess vessels are equipped with kilns. It would be quite nice, wouldn’t it? While you were en route to Britain, Mexico, or ancient Roman or Greek settlements, you could also use studio space and not give up your artistic practice. I will investigate what other lines teach onboard in the way of ceramics, too.
