At the end of the year 2012 we presented a group exhibition in which participated 15 European potters putting the spotlights on the box in ceramics. We then wrote the following quotes: ceramic boxes are for the modern potter always a grateful but also difficult theme. Inevitably a box has two parts, the container and the lid. The trick is to get these two fitting and keep them fitting in the firing process, not letting them become one piece. Some potters made creating ceramic boxes their speciality. A good example is the French potter Claude Champy who has become known far and wide with his secret boxes.
Once again we brought together a number of potters in an exhibition dedicated to the ceramic box. They practice a range of techniques such as throwing, modelling or casting, they use divers clay bodies, earthenware, stoneware or porcelain. The work can be glazed or not and also it can be decorated or not. They fire their work in an electric kiln , in a gas kiln, in a wood kiln or Raku. With so many possibilities a varied exhibition can be expected. This time we have put our focus on a number of mainly German potters whom we met on a number of ceramic meetings in this country and elsewhere.
Nine potters that will participate each which a maximum of 10 boxes.
