Metamorphoses of ceramics

Looking back and looking forward - Galerie Handwerk Munich from January 13 to February 18, 2023.

Galerie Handwerk München has been showing ceramic exhibitions for over 30 years. Since the turn of the millennium, the gallery even opens its exhibition program in January with a ceramic presentation. Thus, many international contributions from the most diverse countries and regions of Europe, from overseas, Japan and Korea have been presented in Munich. With these exhibitions, Galerie Handwerk has given itself a focal theme that serves in a special way to promote and explain contemporary ceramics. This focus in the exhibition program will be maintained in 2023. The ceramic enthusiasts can thus get an overview of this exciting topic of craft, applied and sometimes also fine art in a continuous way.

In his stoneware sculptures, Eric Astoul explores the harmony between form and the mineralization created by fire.

“In January 2023, we would like to look back a little and look ahead at the same time,” Wolfgang Lösche says. “Thus, ceramicists will be invited whom we have accompanied over many years, but also those in whom we could discover exciting new things and who belong to a younger generation.”

The theme of the exhibition is the process of transformation that is so evident in the creation of ceramics. The interplay of the characteristics of the clay and the colors that change in the glow, and the artistic intention of the artist who creates fascinating objects through surface, shape and expression.
