🔥 The Australian Ceramics Triennale just finished a few days ago – the event featured lectures, exhibitions, masterclasses, and many other special events. / The 3rd International Porcelain Biennale opened a week ago at the Albrechtsburg Castle, in Meissen, Germany. 25 artists working with porcelain are showing their work. / The International Ceramics Fair Oldenburg will take place August 6-7 in the historic city of Oldenburg, Germany. Over 100 artists will show & sell their work.
⚫ The ceramic art community is sad to learn about the passing of Antonio Vivas Zamarano, editor of Revista Cerámica, Madrid, and Ogata Kamio (b. 1949), Japanese ceramic artist. May their work always be remembered and cherished.
✍️ The Craft Council of BC & the NWCF just announced the launch of a Ceramic Marks Registry for British Columbia, a growing online database of ceramic marks and maker biographies for ceramicists working in BC, past and present. The Registry already contains over 500+ makers due to the diligent work of researchers Debra Sloan and Allan Collier. It’s a wonderful initiative that other organizations can replicate in their own countries. Congratulations!
