The Cité de la Céramique in Sèvres and La Maison Rouge in Paris present Ceramix : an exciting exhibition of ceramic pieces made by artists only – and not designers, which means that they are no usual goods. What was regarded as crafts for a long time became a real playground for art. While La Maison Rouge focuses more on contemporary explorations, Sèvres confronts them to the pioneers’ stunning creations. From Gauguin to facetious Elsa Sahal or Jessica Harrison , including the revolution of japanese group Sodeisha, the journey shows how ceramics has been going with the issues of their time. The renewed interest for this material may find an explanation in the urge of taking up with Mother Earth again. Considering the quality and the vitality of contemporary creation, this is good news !
