TERRA NOVA: Canadian ‘Ground-Breakers’ in Ceramic Art
Ceramic arts may date back well over 25,000 years but contemporary artists continue to redefine both its material and conceptual possibilities. Terra Nova brings together some of Canada’s most innovative contemporary ceramic artists in a fresh celebration of beauty. Ranging from sculpture and thwarted functional pieces, to multi-media installations, these artists’ unique approaches both materially and conceptually will delight and astound viewers.
