Contemporary Ceramics is located in London, opposite the British Museum. At the front of the gallery, a retail space sells studio ceramics from over 80 makers, who are members of the Craft Potters Association. This is complemented by a dedicated gallery space which hosts regular solo and group exhibitions. From a membership of nearly 400, five new makers are selected to be featured in the gallery every two months. This blog highlights their inspirational stories and tales of ceramics.
New work for September - Geoffrey Swindell
Geoffrey Swindell’s pots are thrown in porcelain. Sources of inspiration include marine creatures, fossils, tin plate toys, eroded objects. By extracting essential elements from these sources and reflecting them in his own imagery he hopes to create vessels with an ambiguous presence.
