The Cyprus Pottery and Ceramic Association continue building upon a long tradition by organising an annual collective ceramic art exhibition, this year in the city of Limassol, at the established Morfi Gallery.
Clay has been used for various purposes throughout History; it had always been an important material made into utilities, ornaments, artefacts, jewellery, decoration and much more. The beginning of ceramic art was close to the beginning of mankind; still relevant today after 27.000 years, it has had a great revival within the world of plastic arts in the recent years. One may claim that, in a world that is oozing with technological advances on a daily basis, a return to our roots is essential. A return to earth, water and fire. To an ancient craft that brings us closer to nature, to our inner instincts.
The field of ceramics today is rich and varied. The ceramicists of the Association take the medium in multiple directions, manipulating it in their own manner, creating a plethora of different styles and identities. In their work they show consciousness of tradition and popular culture, by using the medium to tell their own stories. This is what makes this exhibition distinctive; it presents a vast, diverse, contemporary collection of artefacts, using the same medium as our ancestors – clay.
