Deform 2, Gallery Gallery

Deform 2, Gallery Gallery, Kyoto Japan 1998

Deform 2 is a continuation of Deform 1 – Deform 1, Exhibition Room for New Ceramics
The project was developed as a cooperation between Gitte Jungersen and Flemming Tvede during a residency at Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, Japan 1998.

Deform 2 investigates the stages between the form bearing clay and the melting fluid glazes. The project is an experimental investigation into creating a sculptural expression on ceramic’s own premises, inasmuch as the forms are based on the actual chemical process, which is set into motion when the clay is fired. The project was exhibited at Gallery Gallery in Kyoto 1998. One of the works is in the collection of Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, Japan.
