Cassius Clay og Iwami Shinsuke: Bornholm Wild Clay Research Project


10 Sep – 23 Oct 11:00 AM–5:00 PM

As potters working in the tradition of making thrown functional ware from local materials, fired in
wood kilns, both Iwami Shinsuke og Anne Mette Hjortshøj were invited to participate in The
International Teabowl Festival in South Korea. Inspired by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada and
their many years of exchanging knowledge and skills from working together, the two potters
founded Bornholm Wild Clay Research Project.
The project has developed over a decade. Jesper L. Larsen and Ann-Charlotte Ohlsson are part of
the group. Many students from both Denmark, Japan and the rest of the world have participated
and the project has been presented at conferences both in Britain, in America, as well as at the
International Ceramic Triennale in Hobart, Australia.
This year the group is pleased to finally present a view into 10 years research, to an audience on
the island of Bornholm. Next year an exhibition with finished pieces, will be held in TOKO Gallery in
Mashiko, Japan.
