Ceramic Ireland is honored to present the collection of work by the 42 creators of the Land/Marks exhibition that will land at Argillà Italia in Faenza in September 2022 where Ireland will be present as the host country.

Ceramic Ireland is pleased to present Land/Marks for the fourth time in its third exhibition series, maintaining the ethos of celebrating the variety and breadth of contemporary ceramic works by artists from Ireland and beyond. Land/Marks will present works that explore and challenge clay, studying its malleability and pushing its limits.

This will be made evident by the variety of sculptural forms, functional containers and installation-based works. The independent jury of three experts selected 42 creators for this three-year series that will celebrate the craftsmanship and skills of these contemporary professionals. The selected group includes new makers, some still at the beginning of their journey-Anton J. Lopez, Simon Kidd, Sarah Roseingrave alongside more established makers-Sara Flynn, Mark Campden and Isobel Egan.

Featured Producers: Alison Brent, Frances Brosnan, Cathy Burke, Yasha Butler, Anne Butler, Mike Byrne, Tina Byrne, Mark Campden, Barra Cassidy, Sophie Kate Curran, Jack Doherty, Chloë Dowds, Isobel Egan, Áine Farrelly, Sara Flynn, Adam Frew, Niamh Harte, Jennifer Hickey, Jane Jermyn, Andrea Kavanagh, Alison Kay, Simon Kidd, Michael Kobuladze, Nanette Ledwith, Antonio J.
