Clay2Day International Festival: 2015 – Review

clay2day scene-1blog

Clay2Day International Keramiek Festival 2015 organised by Sarah Michael was held over 2nd and 3rd May at De Olmenhorst Organic Orchards, Lisserbroek, Holland.

Glorious weather the first day and rain the second but people were not thwarted. Visitors enjoyed exploring the varied work of nearly sixty makers from around Europe joined by British artists Pollie and Garry Uttley, David WrightClare Wakefield and Marie Prett. Marie’s travelling circus was featured alongside details of the event in Dutch Ceramics Magazine ‘Klei’

 In addition there was an exhibition of competition works from artists marking the 125th anniversary of Vincent Van Gogh’s passing. Prizes were awarded at an extravagant potter’s meal on the Saturday night. Joint first prize went to Job Heykamp’s take on ‘the potato eaters’ and Clare Wakefield’s depiction of ‘Vincent’s sun over Lisserbroek’ which brought Van Gogh’s brushstrokes into 3D with over one hundred pieces of wire and her trade mark piercing. The sun was later seen warming the hands of makers on the colder Sunday.

A special prize went to Marta Dimitrova who brought her installation of mugs by air from Bulgaria. Each mug was decorated with an original drawing but when all mugs were upended collectively they created a further image of Vincent himself.

Further details of the next Clay2Day can be obtained from info@clay2day.nl and www.sarahmichael.nl and details of the venue from www.olmenhorst.nl
