Our constantly changing experience of ceramics sees us engage with the material in alternative locations, destroy and activate work, encounter clay as impermanent, and interpret the material through new technologies, with this in mind, what implications does this have in relation to museum, material and maker? The question as to what ceramics might be, what it might develop into and what it might become are significant to the artist, museum, theorist and educator and will be examined and discussed through the diversity of contemporary ceramic practice that expands upon a traditional position.
