Building with clay

Beautifully built artworks show utility and beauty of ceramics

from 15 September 2023 up to and including 14 January 2024

Anyone that looks around themselves very well for only just a moment, is likely to see quickly an object made of ceramics. The coffee cup, the breakfast plate, the washbasin, the toilet-bowl, the tiles on the wall and floor, the bricks in the wall, even the tiles on the roof. In addition to useful things, clay is also used to make works of art. The exhibition ”Building with clay” shows ceramic art from home and abroad. All artists ‘build’ their works and/or refer to architecture. The occasion for the exhibition is the 250th anniversary of the Tegelen roof tile industry. This exhibition pays tribute to clay as a building material.
