The selling shows - as it is in the ethos of London Potters’ events - feature both established professionals as well as emerging talents and with items to suit all budgets.
The exhibits reflect the diverse nature and adaptability of clay as a creative medium, with emphasis on innovative and original design. The range of contemporary ceramics on show span from purely abstract, decorative pieces to tableware that fulfil a practical function; from decorative, ceramic jewellery to striking one-off collectors’ pieces.
Patterns and colours achieved in a raku firing are juxtaposed with works playing on the delicate light and shade of porcelain forms; surface decorations playing on optical illusion contrast with hand-pinched or hand-coiled organic wall pieces; a collection of wearable ceramics, incorporating natural cords and silk threads, is on offer as well as functional items that strike a balance between minimalist and abstract design.
To fully showcase the range of ceramic techniques and diversity, 10 different selected members of London Potters will exhibit each weekend.
