RCA opens London ceramics show

The Royal College of Art will open its fourth Ceramic Art London selling exhibition today.


The three-day event brings 80 of the world’s ceramicists to the capital, to display their wares to collectors, gallery owners, investors, other potters and the general public.


Exhibitors will include established designers such as Chris Keenen, Jack Doherty and Peter Beard, alongside new and emerging talent from ceramicists including Polish designer Aneta Regel Deleu and Japanese designer Ikuko Iwamoto, as well as work from Louisa Taylor, who graduated from the RCA in 2006 and has been commissioned to design for Wedgwood.


Ceramics on display will be in a wide variety of styles, colour and forms, and works on sale will range from £15 up to £10 000.


A number of free talks and events accompany the show, including a talk by potter Edmund De Waal, a workshop by Simon Hulbert and a ‘Desert Island Pots’ interview with Emmanuel Cooper, editor of Ceramic Review.


Ceramic Art London 2008 runs from 29 February to 2 March. For more information, visit www.ceramics.org.uk.
