Organised by the Craft Potters Association, this always popular artist-led fair showcases the work of 90 makers in the light-filled atrium of Central Saint Martins.
Truly international in scope - with exhibitors from the UK, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Denmark, South Korea and Japan - the fair sees the return of renowned makers such as Akiko Hirai, Sophie Cook and James Hake, as well as first-time exhibitors and rising stars including Ben Arnup, Rachel Wood, Silke Decker, Mathew Horne and Lauren Nauman.
For the artists, CAL offers a unique platform to showcase and sell their work. For the public, it presents a compelling snapshot of the global contemporary ceramics market and a rare opportunity to buy unique, handmade pieces directly from the makers. Items on sale range from contemporary twists on functional tableware to sublime sculptural pieces and experimental work that pushes the boundaries of this ancient craft. With prices ranging from £25 for an exquisite tea cup by Sue Pryke to £8,000 for an original sculpture by Fenella Elms, CAL offers collectors of all budgets the chance to take something home.
Situated in the heart of the thriving Kings Cross Knowledge Quarter, CAL is conveniently located for collectors, commuters and the curious. As part of an ongoing relationship with Central Saint Martins, the fair will host CLAYTALKS@CAL a programme of free events, talks and workshops offering insights into the world of ceramics.
