Crowd Pleaser – People Who Pot in MDR Gallery, London

February 18 – April 7, 2019.

Group show in MDR Gallery in London. Crowd Pleaser presents the work of a new generation of designers who are using ceramic as a medium for their own expression. Within the past few years there has been a rapid and dramatic shift in the perception of ceramic as a creative material and, subsequently, its place within contemporary design. Once the preserve of craftsmen and women, with value placed upon it relative to the level of skill and expertise with which it was processed, or alternatively; a useful everyday material for industrial mass-production, ceramic languished. But, today, makers are exploiting the potential of this most pliable material. At MDR Gallery we recognise that the fashion for inventive and extraordinary design-led studio ceramics has reached a crescendo. We chose to celebrate that and gather together a selection of some of the most experimental and extraordinary work in this area.

Featured work from: Victoria Andrew, Dimitri Bähler, Erika Emerén, Emily Stapleton Jefferis, Gitte Jungersen, Romain Kloeckner, Ian McIntyre, Studio Mieke Meijer, Studio Joachim-Morineau, Granby Workshop, Sara Söderberg, Floris Wubben.
