Norway House invites our friends from Northern Clay Center to host a discussion on ceramics from the Baltics in celebration of their new exhibit Under the Black and Baltic Deep & Rafael Pérez opening on Friday, October 12.
Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia have a long history of achievement in ceramics, including folk pottery, commercial ware, and sculptural work. After the collapse of the Soviet Union brought independence and democracy to all three nations, ceramic artists responded to their new freedom by moving beyond skillful but guarded creations to more adventurous approaches. NCC’s exhibition will highlight these dramatic new efforts in ceramics with the introduction of nine contemporary makers from across the three countries, who represent the full spectrum of making, age, and education.
Join exhibition liaisons, Tomas J. Daunora, Juss Heinsalu, and Ieva Naglina, and curatorial adviser, Anthony Stellaccio, for a lively discussion about contemporary Baltic ceramics, led by moderator Robert Silberman. This event is free, but advanced registration is required.
