Contemporary Ceramics Centre presents a new body of work from the Spanish ceramic artist Rafael Pérez. An explosion of colour, surface texture and the introduction of steel to Rafael’s work is shown for the first time in the UK.
The driving force behind Pérez’s work is surprise and curiosity. He sees ceramics as an art form that offers a labyrinth of possibilities with infinite variables, making a viewer find their way through his pieces to search and explore. In recent years, his work has been focused on the desire to distance himself from the final object, on leaving the “authorship” as a matter shared between the fire and himself. The surprise of ‘non recognition’ between an object that goes into, and then comes out of the kiln, this ‘seeing with new eyes’ (as if the work was done by someone else) is what interests Pérez.
Wednesday 4th May 2016 6.00 - 8.00 pm
As part of London Craft Week, Contemporary Ceramics Centre is hosting a talk by Rafael Pérez
