Laying Roots to Rise in a Ceramic Showcase
Drawing inspiration from plants and nature, local-based ceramics workshop Potters by the Hill presents an exhibition of the works of 20 emerging ceramic artists.
With the purpose of nurturing a new generation of ceramic artists, over 100 biomorphic pieces will be displayed. The overarching theme of Taking Roots// To Rise reflects the contradictory nature of botanical life. It can be both life-giving and inspirational, while being oppressive and consuming in the wild.
Under the tutelage of veteran artist Chua Chon Hee, these new artists will reflect and recreate their thoughts of this dual nature through clay.
Taking Roots// To Rise ceramic showcase runs till Nov 29, 2022 at 01-05 Stamford Arts Centre, 155 Waterloo Street, from 11am-7pm. Entrance is free. More information here.
