Vase Arp3 by Jean Arp and Atelier Manufacture de Sèvres, 1956. Collection Cité de la Ceramique, Sèvres
Curated by Bernard Bachelier, the exhibition shows us the ceramic works of several renowned artists and their personal approaches to the medium. Clay, a fundamental and sensual raw material has long been part of the history of mankind with its practical qualities allied to its vast creative and artistic potential. The forming of shapes and objects with the hands is a primeval form of expression. What interested Bachelier is how many artists explored ceramics alongside their principal art forms, be it painting or sculpture.
