The Magic of Clay – GL Holtegaard, Denmark

Present Traces was a work commissioned for The Magic of Clay – Ceramics in Contemporary art. The questions raised by the exhibition were what makes clay such a seductive material to today’s artists? In answer to this question The Magic of Clay exhibits the artworks by some of the most significant artists currently working with clay and ceramics; a rich selection of ideas, influences and attitudes from across the world. From domestic scenes of teapots and finely crafted porcelain to magical worlds of clay landscapes and sweeping ceramic installations.
