Eddie Curtis – An exciting and unique International Exhibition starting at Rufford

13 Oct 2009

Eddie is having a major exhibition of his work at Rufford next June (starting on the 13th). To make what is already an exciting exhibition even more exceptional, Eddie plans to use the opportunity to celebrate the international bonds and friendship that exist within the ceramic world. He has come up with an original and very special way to demonstrate this friendship. In his own words:

“As a part of my exhibition I want to celebrate the international aspect of ceramics and the camaraderie only shown in the world of ceramics.  I had this idea that if I asked my friends to fire a piece of my work in each of their kilns it would be the ultimate cultural exchange.

After taking a deep breath I asked Shozo Michikawa, Japan; Rizu Takehashi, Japan/France: Pascal Geoffroy, France: Linda de Nil, Belgium; and Uwe Lollman, Germany.

Without hesitation they all agreed and were very enthusiastic.  I am so honoured to have my things in their kilns.  Each of my pieces will essentially be made in the same manner  in my normal, stoneware ‘stretched’ style but only glazed by me (Iron celadon) on the inside.  The Anagamas will do the rest.  I am not aware that this has been done before.  I have given them no instruction other than to make their own decision on how they will be placed in  their kiln.”

This is a great idea and should produce a stunning exhibition.  It is hoped that the exhibition will move to a leading German gallery (Galerie Metzger) near Frankfurt in Autumn 2010.
