We bring you a collection of ceramic art, in all its many forms. Everything that is good and made in Britain by the best ceramic artists, potters, designers, artisans and craftsmen and women working today.
Included in our selection are all the people and companies we, at Ceramic Fusion, hold in high regard, either for their energy and imagination, or for their technical mastery.
This is a showcase for made in Britain talent, and if you think your work has a place here, just contact us. If you want to enquire about purchasing or commissioning any work, just contact us.
Our interest is in ideas and visual delight. Unlike, say the Craft Potters Guild, we want to talk about artists and designers who may have never thrown a pot in the traditional sense, but nevertheless see ceramics as a brilliant and fresh 21st century medium.
The austerity and earnestness of the 20th century with master potter Bernard Leach's teachings about the form and harmony of ceramics has been overtaken by a new artistic expression he perhaps could never have imagined, being a man born in the 19th century.
We are in the realm of the post-modern and it is a very exciting place to be.
When we look at upcycling, we are looking at up-scale upcycling. Re-purposing with modern interior design ideas in mind.
Our technical potters are all bastions of the science of throwing stoneware and glaze decoration, but they have an eye on the contemporary living room and have cognitive ideas which support their ideas like pillars.
Then there is a breed of young ceramicists who are very good potters indeed, but they use their technical to achieve art which is more than just potting, it has a lighter feel and perhaps an even deeper meaning. We split these two factions into two distinct sections, the potters into 'Contemporary Potters' and the second group into 'Contemporary Ceramic Artists'
There is a third group who put out tableware and other work, but do not ever go near a wheel. They are in the 'Cool Art' section under "Get Inspired" on the left hand navigation column.
We have sections also on assemblage art, a genre which we feel lends itself very well to using ceramic objects in the installations.
We have put together sections to help you hunt for special, unique and unusual gifts and also a room by room survey of modern interior design ideas in the context of contemporary ceramics.
Enjoy browsing our website and enjoy the dazzling showcase we present for your delectation.
