Ceramic Art London: 22-24 March 2019

calblog2019a

In recent years, the world of ceramics has exploded any lazy preconceptions of being a crafty backwater with booming markets for everything from unique, hand crafted tableware to highly collectable art pieces. Returning for its 15th year this Spring, the hotly anticipated Ceramic Art London is the ultimate fair in which to see and buy the finest ceramics being made in the world today.

Organised by the Craft Potters Association, and featuring over 90 of the best makers from around the world, including UK, Germany and Spain and as far afield as Japan, South Korea and Brazil, the fair takes place once again in the spacious central concourse of Central Saint Martins’ Grade 2 listed Victorian Granary building. Visitors can also take time out from shopping and meeting the makers to attend the always fascinating ClayTalks series which, this year, features a keynote speech by V&A Director Tristram Hunt and an appearance by celebrated ceramic artist Kate Malone. In a new event for 2019, visitors get to see sparks fly at The Kiln House, a temporary outdoor kiln which will be located at the nearby Skip Garden.

While always a showcase for both functional and sculptural ceramics, this year sees more work by makers whose practices are deeply rooted in the sculptural. Exhibitors to look out for include David Binns, who draws on contemporary architecture and natural forms to create expertly glazed vessels in gorgeous hues of jade, self-taught Korean ceramist Miho Inagaki, whose textural, wall-based mesh works resemble the cracked earth and Paula Bastiaansen,whose translucent porcelain creations have an ethereal fragility about them.

Among the returning artists are Nuala O’Donovan, whose anemone-like forms are inspired by nature’s irregular beauty, Henry Pim, with his structural pieces handbuilt using paper and clay, and Sewon Minn with her gloriously eccentric designs. Rowena Brown presents her ceramics house sets inspired by abandoned crofters houses in the Hebrides while the multi-award winning Grainne Watts returns with her sensually shaped and intensely coloured vessels and sculptures that this year provide the visual identity for the whole event.

Prices start at £27 for one of  Yuta Segawa’s miniature vases, or £35 for one of Elly Wall’s  hand painted pastel cups, to £6.5K for one of Ashraf Hanna’s sublime vessels.

ClayTalks, a dynamic talks series featuring prestigious names from the world of ceramics and beyond, is programmed in partnership with Central Saint Martins and takes place throughout the weekend. Booking in advance is essential for this popular series. Past speakers have included Grayson Perry, Keith Brymer Jones and Phoebe Cummings. ClayTalks highlights include a Keynote Address by V&A director  Tristram Hunt, and talks by celebrated ceramic artist and Great Pottery Throwdown judge Kate Malone, design and craft writer Grant Gibson, ceramic artist Mella Shaw, gallerist Joanna Bird, ceramics collector Preston Fitzgerald, terracotta specialists Darwen Terracottaand artist and maker collective Haptic Tacit. Throughout the weekend, Kiln House- located at Skip Garden, the sustainable urban garden adjacent to Central Saint Martins – offers visitors the chance to witness ceramic firing in an outdoor setting.
