#24 – An online display like no other
Ceramics Now Weekly #24 features an online exhibition, a job board, the week's news in the ceramics world, and new artists.
Hello! Welcome to the 24th edition of Ceramics Now Weekly. This is Vasi Hirdo, the founding editor of Ceramics Now.
I hope you are doing well today 👋 Let’s see what's new.
Nick Ervinck, an artist based in Belgium whose studio works we featured last year in Ceramics Now, recently launched MUSEION / ΜΟΥΣΕΙΟ - an online exhibition that brings together a collection of artworks that ask intriguing questions about our recent history. Read more about the exhibition and view the display.
"Last year and in particular during the various lockdowns of 2021 we worked on this virtual museum of over 25,000m² where I organize my oeuvre and enter into a dialogue with the world and history. This museum is a gift to humanity that has felt completely locked up and deprived of culture in recent years."
Kouzo Takeuchi’s profile was created with the participation of Keiko Art International.

👀 Here is a fine example of a class that brings students (who are not majoring in ceramics) closer to ceramics through the use of computer-aided design and 3D printing. Taught by Assistant Professor Peter Pincus, this class at the Rochester Institute of Technology explores parallels between innovative methodologies in ceramics and manufacturing in the 18th century and the role modern fabrication processes play in those fields today.
