‘Argilos’ at Carwan Gallery, Athens

Sep 21, 2023 06:00 PM - Nov 11, 2023 5:00 PM
Gordon Baldwin’s work will be included in the group exhibition ‘Argilos’ at Carwan Gallery, Athens. The exhibition features artists from Fondazione Officine Saffi’s collection. The works on display, spanning from the 1970s to the present day, will highlight the foundation’s extensive research into 20th Century and contemporary ceramics.

The showcase encompasses both functional and non-functional ceramic pieces, most of which were specially commissioned by Fondazione Officine Saffi and are now part of its collection. Every artwork on display is pushing the boundaries of the medium, showcasing the limitless creativity, expressiveness, and plastic potential of clay, in a visual and material conversation between the past and the present.

Contemporary Ceramics at Newstead Abbey

Mar 4, 2023 10:00 AM - Oct 29, 2023 5:00 PM

This exhibition – which sits alongside the Crafted in Clay pottery trail – aims to give a partial and subjective overview of contemporary ceramics in Britain, with potters and artists selected by Tommaso Corvi-Mora, including Gordon Baldwin OBE.

Tommaso is the owner of Corvi-Mora gallery in London, which has championed the work of ceramic artists for many years. He is also an artist and his work features in the Crafted in Clay trail.

The work in this exhibition spans forty years, from the mid-1980s until today and also features two works from the 1870s by the Martin Brothers, early forerunners of studio potters.

The exhibition revolves around the work of artists who either focus on the vessel as a starting point of their investigation or who adopt the model of the studio potter – an artist following the whole process of making ceramics from beginning to end, working alone in the studio – to structure their own practice. In most cases both elements are present.
