Young Masters at Collect


22 - 25 february 2018

Young Masters participated in the Craft Council's annual fair Collect 2019 at the Saatchi Gallery, showcasing selected works with The Cynthia Corbett Gallery. All participating artists show an exceptional command of the medium of ceramics alongside an awareness of the heritage of ceramic craft.

We were delighted to present the debut of Zemer Peled’s latest residency at Bernardaud Limoges. In 2018 Peled launched a new tableware collection IN BLOOM, with the world's leading porcelain manufacturer, Bernardaud. IN BLOOM - The Cobalt Flower Collection by Zemer Peled captures the movement and dynamism associated with Peled’s sculptural work. Jubilant flowers burst forth from plates, cups, saucers, and bowls; vibrating with botanical energy. And, as always with Peled’s creations, there is more than meets the eye.

Highlights also included a solo focus presentation of new works by Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize 2017 winner Lucille Lewin whose latest works in porcelain and glass are part of an ongoing series The Time Between The Time. Phoebe Cummings, recent winner of the BBC Women’s Hour Craft Prize, describes ‘a sense of alchemy, quietly resolving itself into a new understanding of who we are in relation to our bodies as we approach the future.’

Following his critically acclaimed, Arts Council England funded Wunderkammer installation at Collect 2017, Matt Smith, winner of the 2014 Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize, debuted Wunderkammer III at Collect 2019. In this latest project, Smith combines new subversive and comical forms with white Parian and found ceramics.

Including works by:

Alice Couttouppes, Matt Davis, Tessa Eastman, Michal Fargo, Lucille Lewin, Jongjin Park, Zemer Peled, Matt Smith, Alissa Volchkova
