Ceramic Art London, the leading international showcase for contemporary ceramics, will return to London from 17 - 19 April 2015. Celebrating its 11th edition in 2015, the fair will take place at the prestigious Royal College of Art, situated in the heart of the capital.
Eighty ceramic artists from across the world will travel to the city to present work at the 2015 installment of Ceramic Art London. Presented by the Craft Potters Association in partnership with Ceramic Review, and with a rigorous selection process conducted by an independent committee, the fair maintains a respected reputation as the place to discover and acquire the finest new ceramic art in production today.
The 2015 edition of the fair will feature a spread of work of unparalleled breadth and quality. Artists will present items ranging from functional everyday homeware, to figurative sculptures, and exhibited works will encompass the full range of ceramic-making techniques from traditional methods to cutting-edge contemporary processes.
As well as offering work by widely celebrated figures of contemporary ceramics including Peter Beard, Thomas Bohle, Eddie Curtis, Akiko Hirai, Gabriele Koch and Annie Turner, the fair also acts as an opportunity to source pieces by exciting emerging talent showing at the fair for the first time.
An artist-led fair, Ceramic Art London facilitates the unique chance to buy pieces directly from the makers and, with prices ranging from £30 to £10,000, the event provides a personalised experience catering to all collecting budgets and interests. A special exhibition of work by current ceramics students of the Royal College of Art will provide a further platform for rising stars to present new work.
A lively programme of free events will also be staged on each day of the fair. The renowned series, entitled Discovery, will comprise of talks, demonstrations, film screenings, debates and panel discussions designed to afford visitors an insight into current issues, working practices and techniques involved in the creation of ceramic art.
