In this exhibition, all artists used the same material of clay, but their works hold different meanings. Each artist investigates characteristics of clay and glaze. The artists found the unique texture of clay and glaze. Each artist expressed the materials, interests, bodies, and passions of everyday life through modern colours and primitive textures of ceramics. Humans live by expressing their emotions in various ways. Unfortunately, many people distort their emotions or suppress them, causing personal stress and social problems. We(Artists and curators) believe that humans should express what is inside of them through the sharing of emotions. Using ceramic works, artists visually and tactfully articulate invisible emotions and textures. The exhibition provides the audience with a rich and extensive visual and tactile experience. The current exhibition aims to ease the public’s engagement with ceramics. This exhibition aims to share emotions, communicate the artists' works and the audience. It shows how the audience can touch and feel the texture of the Artist's Interactive part of artwork newly created, functional, and expressive work and explore how the work and the depth of the artists' lives significantly impact. This exhibition is about pushing the limitations and boundaries of the material process and link pushing the boundaries to an exploration of the artist's self and textures. The exhibition allows the audience to experiment with the artist in expressionism through clay.
