Outdoor kiln confirmed for Ceramic Art London
As part of the programme for Ceramic Art London 2019, visitors can expect to see sparks fly as work is fired inÂ The Kiln House. Situated in the Skip Garden, the sustainable urban garden adjacent to Central Saint Martins, over Friday and Saturday, the newly constructed Kiln House will host workshops and live raku firings, hosted by the Sustainable Anthropocene Cooperative, made up of two BA students from Central Saint Martins and Camberwell College of Art. The workshops will use clay to attempt to go back to our roots and re-interpret our connection with nature, to educate and integrate and to share awareness of the changes nature is experiencing due to human action. Join a making workshop, or watch a firing and kiln unpacking.
ClayTalksÂ is the annual, dynamic talks series running throughout the weekend and featuring prestigious names from the world of ceramics and beyond, 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 andÂ Great Pottery ThrowdownÂ judge Kate Malone, design and craft writer Grant Gibson, ceramic artist Mella Shaw, gallerist Joanna Bird, ceramics collector Preston Fitzgerald, terracotta specialists Darwen Terracotta and artist and maker collective Haptic Tacit.
