The ceramic art symposium CERAMIC LABORATORY was held for the sixth time and brought together 14 ceramic artists from 9 countries. The symposium is organised by Latvian Centre for Contemporary Ceramics in cooperation with Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre as a meeting point for ceramic artists and enthusiasts who come to exchange ideas and share experiences. As such, it shapes Daugavpils into a solid platform of ceramic art where artists can stay and develop, creating a space that exhibits world-class ceramic art of premium quality.
The exhibition showcases some of the works that the artists created over the past two weeks in Daugavpils, drawing from its atmosphere and enjoying the nature’s gift of all but uninterrupted sunshine. Perhaps these works tell a story of a different Daugavpils – one that can only be seen through ceramicists’ eyes as they create artwork which oozes the unique feel and ambience of the town and its surroundings.
