CLAY – BOOK LAUNCH & EXHIBITION
Curated by Amber Creswell Bell
There is something deeply pleasing about the form and feel of handmade objects. Never has this been more evident than in the recent renaissance of pottery and ceramics. In our increasingly digital and intangible culture, there is a desire for unique pieces and a respect for the imperfections associated with the marks of the maker. Clay is the medium that so aptly communicates this authenticity.
From the functional to the decorative and sculptural works pushing the boundaries of the craft, Clay, written by Amber Creswell Bell, offers a glimpse into the lives and practices of over 50 studio potters from around the world. This is a celebration of the new pottery artisans; a snapshot of a moment of resurgence; and a behind-the-scenes look at the unique and eclectic offerings from independent studios from around the world.
Clay the exhibition seeks to bring the pages of this new book to life, with pieces from the artists profiled in the book. This show, curated by the author, seeks to celebrate the medium of clay, and all the wonderful stories of the people who devote their days to this beautiful and popular material.
