Ceramics at the crossroads of Contemporary Design and Ancient Art: Mon Coin Studio
The relationship between hands and clay is the basis of the ceramic art form. Ceramics—in the form of bricks, tiles, vessels, and sculptures—have endured for millennia, and the medium continues to be explored today. Mon Coin studio inaugurates an exhibition on contemporary ceramics, Ceramic Design, that examines the timeless art of pottery-making with the contemporary world of design.
What: 58 potters, ceramicists and designers collaborate creatively with objects that bridge the two worlds of art and design, using millennia-old techniques and materials alongside 3D technology and production methods. When you put your hands to clay, the natural inclination to form, shape, and ultimately create something from the fine-grained soil is inescapable. Ceramics are perhaps the most ubiquitous of all art forms to have emerged from human history. The art of ceramics has endured for eons, with a rich legacy of thousands of years of creation and know-how, passed down from generation to generation. The medium continues to be explored today. Mon Coin studio probes into the commonalities of ceramics and design to connect art, utility and aesthetics.
