A fine Line – an exhibition on contemporary British ceramics

Curated by Katharina Klug in cooperation with the Cambridge Contemporary Art

11 March - 2 April 2017

I make ceramic work but I also admire, study and collect work by other makers – therefore curating (or to organize) an exhibition was a goal/dream of mine.

As a professional artist it is important to have a good relationship with galleries. And with CCA I felt I could make a suggestion on making pottery the focus of one of their shows.

The team loved the idea and asked me if I would be interested in putting it together. Over the last 6 years I met lot of makers or saw their work. And to have the opportunity to select makers work was just very exciting.

It is a mixture of established and up and coming makers. I set a loose theme “Fine Line” My work is heavily inspired by lines. And I think pottery is all about lines, whether it is on the surface, the shape. I picked most makers particular for their interpretation on lines. The exhibition will also have talks and demonstrations alongside to give deeper inside into the making and the thought process behind it. Often ceramic is shown in art galleries to a compliment paintings or print, with this I wanted to shine a light on the art of making vessels.
