Clay for Tomorrow Ceramics Lauch

The Art of Bread Making

Here comes the hot buns!

Kneading, shaping, applying toppings and firing are steps taken to culminate in freshly baked breads for hungry stomachs – in the time-space of a ceramic studio, however, these very same steps produce freshly fired ceramic works.

And so, six St. James' Creation ceramists teamed up with ceramist Li Wei-han, Rosanna to launch a bakery in the studio, churning out trays after trays of ceramic toasts, pretzels, doughnuts, cakes, etc. Hunger turned out to be the most powerful fuel for creativity.

Fresh off the hot kiln, the "breads" are then mounted racks after racks in the gallery, which has now become a bakery – a spectacle for the hungry passersby. Where faux breads stand in for the real ones, this program explores how art re-enters life, the very place where it comes from.
