In September 2011, a group of Irish ceramic artists will travel to the Chinese town of Fuping, Shaanxi, to make the foundation collection for the newly built Irish Pavilion at the Fule International Ceramic Art Museum. The Irish Pavilion will showcase the best of the new wave of ceramic art emerging from Ireland, marrying the ancient techniques of the East to our own cultural traditions. It is a permanent exhibition space created to house the work of those ceramic artists whose subtlety, skill and vision captures the spirit of contemporary Ireland. Eleanor Flegg, writer, and Andrew Standen Raz, film maker and photographer, will travel with the group to document the residency. The Irish Pavilion opens on the 4th October 2011.

Michael says...

Here's a news flash from Michael Moore: 'Following my time in Fuping and our experiences of Bricks in the Rain exhibitions in Dublin and Cork, I have been developing a layered series of pieces. Some with bursting colour as in the 'Double Walled Form' from 'Bricks' but also now a cooler series of pieces I describe as the 'Second Skin' Series. 'Flow' which you see here, inspired by pillow forms, describes this cooler layering of white on white. This is currently on exhibition at the Galatea Gallery, Bucharest, Romania. I understand the show goes to Germany next. (Nov. 2013)'
