Taking place, once again, in the grand setting of Central Saint Martins concourse, Ceramic Art London
is the place to see and buy the best contemporary ceramic art made by 110 of the most prestigious makers from around the world.
With price points ranging from £20 £5000, this years edition will see an expanded snapshot of contemporary ceramic making, from the functional and decorative to the abstract and architectural.
Among the 34 first-time exhibitors are Irina Razumovskaya, whose textural sculptures create the illusion of peeling bark, Hassakorn Hirunsirichoke with his intricate and alienesque miniature forms and, from Canada, Toni Losey whose work embraces both the functional and sculptural. Returning makers include Tricia Thom, with her Japanese-inspired porcelain works, Arjan Van Dal whose engineering background is reflected in ultra-contemporary designs and Lisa Hammond, whose alchemic mastery of soda glaze firing transforms the simple forms of her mugs and vases. Animals and nature are a recurring theme, from Charlotte Packs Species Pots to Barbara Hasts plant-inspired porcelain curiosities and Zoe Whitesides white stoneware polar bears.
Programmed in partnership with Central Saint Martins, ClayTalks returns with a series of illuminating talks given by prestigious names from the ceramic world. This years highlights include a keynote from lauded ceramicist Magdalene Odundo OBE and Sue Pryke who, as well as being a major designer for IKEA, was recently announced as a judge on the next series of The Great Pottery Throw Down airing on Channel 4 in 2020. Past speakers have included Tristram Hunt, Kate Malone, Keith Brymer-Jones, Grayson Perry, Phoebe Cummings among many others.
Year on year we have a growing number of exhibitors eager to show and more visitors wanting to attend, so were delighted to announce a major expansion for 2020. The extended space which sees the fair spread into the dramatic setting of Central Saint Martins crossing allows us to increase the breadth of artists we profile, tapping into areas of the ceramics landscape that we had previously been unable to showcase.
