East-West Ceramics Collaboration V

UH Mānoa Art Gallery, Art Building
Sunday October 23 – Friday December 9

East-West Ceramics Collaboration VWhat happens when 12 international ceramics artists get together to work and play with more than a half ton of clay for four full weeks? Working side by side, this group of ceramics professionals spent long hours together sharing their cultures, ideas, and views about art during the East-West Ceramics Collaboration V Workshop, held recently at the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.

Out of the clay, a variety of concepts and forms have taken shape, textures and patterns have appeared, and glazes and decals have brought colors, images, and text to the surfaces. These exciting new ceramic works that range from graceful porcelain, bold abstract sculptural forms, traditional vessels to humorous flights of fancy have something to engage every visitor to this exhibition.

Many of the artworks will be available for purchase. Participating artists represent the countries of Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Mexico, People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States.
