Description

As part of the London Craft Week 2017, China Design Centre and the Pottery Workshop work togahter again to bring 15 young craftmakers here to present contemporay works inspired by Chinese tradition.

While many people think of China’s craft as silk scarfs, blue and white porcelain and carving with bamboo and wood, little do they know what its young artisans are up to these days. This exhibition shows how these artisans are keeping their craft alive while making work that reaches beyond tradition. Contemporary performances with handmade leather shadow puppets, crossover in ceramics, and combining 3D print design technology with handcraft ceramics will be part of this exhibition.

作为2017年伦敦手工艺周的合作展览,中国设计中心和乐天陶社再次合作,在伦敦中国设计中心展示中国当代手工艺的创新。提到中国的手工艺,很多人会立刻想到丝绸、青花瓷、竹雕、木雕等传统手工艺,但很少有人了解现在国内的年轻手艺人在做什么。

本次展览展示了中国年轻手艺人通过创作在传统技艺的基础上延伸,甚至超越传统的作品,使手工艺焕发生机。其中包括当代皮影表演、跨界陶瓷以及将手工技艺和3D打印设计技术相结合的陶瓷等各类形式会在本次展览中有所呈现。
