Michael Fargo & Tessa Eastman at Puls Contemporary Ceramics 11/03/2017 - 15/04/201

michael fargo-tessa eastmanFor the next exhibition, Puls is delighted to introduce a new body of work by two dynamic women at the vanguard of the British contemporary ceramic art scene.

Both artists are London based and MA graduates of London's Royal College of Art. In their relatively short career they have been able to impress many with their originality, skill and above all with a daring new approach to the art form.

TESSA EASTMAN (United Kingdom, 1984)

The meticulously hand built cloud bundles and complex crystal formations created by Tessa Eastman have found a serious following among collectors and gallery owners. Each one of her pieces appears curiously alive with movement. Building her shapes Eastman draws inspiration from organic forms as seen through a microscope. The artist explores the strangeness of growth of natural phenomena in which systems flow and digress from an intended pattern. She subsequently attempts to translate her findings in colourful glazed ceramics. Grouping her works highlights the contrast and creates a dialogue between pieces whereby negative space is valued as much as positive space.

14th International Mug Symposium 12th – 22th June 2017

14th International Mug Symposium
„Traditions and Possibilities 2017“
12th – 22th June 2017

The tradition of symposia in Český porcelain dates back to 1989. From the very beginning, it was necessary to differentiate between painting symposia, and mug symposia, due to their differences and concept. Painting symposia are very close the very production tradition of ČP with its cobalt painting under glazing. This old technique very closely linked with production of "onion-pattern" china expresses the possibility to use artists in open artistic design. Painting SYMPOSIA are known under the title and trademark "TRADITION AND POSSIBILITIES".

MORE CLAY LESS PLASTIC, the first exposition in Nove (Italy) september 2016

settembre-noveMORE CLAY LESS PLASTIC, change in your hand

MORE CLAY LESS PLASTIC, a project by Lauren Moreira, has finally hit the road! The first stop of the traveling exhibition was at Nove in the province of Vicenza during the ceramic festival "Portini Aperti", an event that had the participation of potters from many European countries.

The exhibition took place at the old glaze mill Baccin Cecchetto now Stringa, in the furnace room where the wood kilns were in function until 2002. These wood kilns were the last ones to be fired in Nove. They can still be used as in 2007 for a documentary made by japanese journalists.

Ceramix - Exploring the Darker Sides of Ceramics

Karolein-SmitAMSTERDAM — At first glance, Jessica Harrison’s “Shirley” looks like one of those Victorian-style porcelain collectable figurines so popular in the 1980s — the kind that Ms. Harrison’s mother and grandmother used to display in glass vitrines in the sitting room.
But on closer inspection, Shirley’s head is not where it should be; it is severed from her neck, and seated on the palm of her hand.
This artwork is part of a series by Ms. Harrison, a British contemporary artist who buys cheapish porcelain figurines on eBay and turns their little lives into scenes of self-inflicted horror, often involving their own disembowelment.
Ms. Harrison’s work represents the radical edge of contemporary ceramics art — one end of the range that a new exhibition at the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht, the Netherlands, hopes to convey.
