Off the Table! Clay for the Wall: National Ceramic Exhibition 2018

Juror's Statement

OFF THE TABLE celebrates ceramic work that escapes the boundaries of the functional and transforms it to the sculptural.

For countless millennia, artisans have used clay to make works that serve everyday functions such as tableware and tile. In recent times, more artists have challenged this traditional role of clay, pushing the boundaries of both the material and its function.

The works chosen for this exhibition challenge convention and expectations in exciting new ways, using both traditional and modern techniques.

Removing clay from its traditional context, the works in this show provide viewers a different vantage point when considering clay as an artistic medium. As the artists in this show illustrate, clay has boundless potential in artistic expression beyond traditional expectations.
