Fire, clay, colours. Contemporay ceramics

Marianne Castelly, arbre à deux jambes

For the first time, the museum is dedicating an exhibition to contemporary ceramics, presenting an evocative panorama spanning the second half of the 20th century to the present day.

Great works by Jean and Jacqueline Lerat are displayed alongside ceramics by Joulia, Pontoreau, Virot, Dejonghe and Champy. These pioneering artists have mastered the constraints of fire and invented unexpected forms and effects at the surface of their creations, inscribing new volumes in space. In the exhibition, older pieces will be highlighted in confrontation with recent creations, overflowing with creativity and colours. On this occasion, ceramics that have recently been donated to the museum are revealed to the visitors.

From 19 May 2021 to 27 February 2022
