Ceramics pick of the month: Karin Lehmann’s slowly moving ceramics installation

Karin Lehmann based in bern, Switzerland has been worked on one of my favorite installations ever in Münster, Germany. Sediment Sampling documents an arrangement of 200 apparently randomly smashed clay pots. The initial shifts towards a gentle decay, slow moving and unpredictable final result since all pots are in unfired state and slowly slide, split and eventually burst when filled with water by the artist.





I would have loved to see a time lapse video. This must have been awesome! This was the beginning:


You know how much I love ceramics, even more if there is a fine line between artisan and art work. G, x

How about some extra inspiration?

  1. Aaaaaa!!!!! Me encantaaa!
    No solo la instalación, que me parece fascinante por su decandencia estudiada y bonita, sino por el entorno. La luz que irradia, la combinación de colores, los sedimentos, esa pulcritud desordenada. Me gusta la sensación de nacimiento, vida y casi muerte que tiene la instalación. Ese estallido y desorden…

    Belleza pura!
    Un abrazo!

  2. Wow, this is so beautiful! The gorgeous earth tones of all the pots and the wonderful way they’ve sunk and slid into the floor, all magnified by the numbers together. It reminds me a little of Anthony Gormley’s beautiful clay figures in a way (love the photos of that here.)

    I agree, a time lapse video would have been amazing to watch as well…
