#1 Learn to lathe pots

The ceramic workshop "Enkuri" - home of ceramist Imants Klīdzējs - is a very peculiar place. Being there is like an adventure itself - all around us art of different calibre, form and texture. Absolute calmness in the vicinity, it seems that time stands still and we are charmed by Imant's stories.


#2 The ceramics stove Naborigama

In 2007 on the left bank of the river Salaca a stove for burning ceramics was built - it is called Naborigama. In the stove it is possible to reach china baking temperature more than 1300 degrees. At the moment it is the only such stove in the Baltic States. Its name Naborigama comes from Japanese and it means  - upward stove, climber stove, describing step-type location of the stove on the hillside.


#3 Ceramic sculpture Ferryman

In honour of the 80th anniversary of Salacgriva, a fire sculpture was built and burnt, which then delights Salacgriva residents and tourists as an element of amenity. Its author is the artist Imants Klīdzējs.
