Handicraft workshop. Pottery is an ancient occupation. Moldovans inherited this occupation from the depths of time, from distant ancestors, as this is one of the most favorable ways of materializing the artistic talents.

DESCRIPTION

Year of foundation: 2010 Location: Călărași district, Hogineşti village Distance from Chișinău: 75 km Facilities: football, volleyball, basketball fields, pool, parking, restrooms. In the Hogineşti village we have found a huge collection of ceramic elements of the artist Vasilii Gonciar. Since 1992, the future skilled craftsman took the habit from his father and became also a potter. He initially worked in his native village Hogineşti, and once he accumulated enough experience and craftsmanship, left for Italy, where he founded a workshop. In over 15 years in Italy, Vasilii has mastered all the progressive information concerning the ceramics. When he returned home, he decided to create the most beautiful local ceramic elements. These can be seen at the famous international fair of potters “Hearth of the Potter - Vasilii Gonciar”, held in the courtyard of the Hogineşti craftsman. Tourists have the opportunity to admire the ceramic masterpieces and benefit from a master presentation. The master is now preparing for the presentation of a new project, in which he invested all his time, enthusiasm and creativity. The “Glorify Moldova” project belongs exclusively to the artist Vasilii Gonciar – who will build a huge oven to create the largest pot of clay, with a capacity of about 18-20 thousand liters to be included in the Guinness book. The moldovan craftsman believes that “the implementation of the project will create a new famous tourist attraction , on an international level, but also will be a source of pride for the whole Moldovan nation”. The giant pot will be installed near the furnace, which will be built in the village of Hogineşti- the place where a world-renowned center for pottery was born.
