Binns, David Stuart and Bre, Alasdair (2008) Prototype examples of kiln cast recycled ceramic and glass waste. Featured in exhibition: 'Object Factory' - The Art of Industrial Ceramics. The Gardiner Museum, Toronto, Canada. [Show/Exhibition]
Object Factory: The Art of Industrial Ceramics is the first major U.S. museum exhibition to survey contemporary innovation in industrial ceramic production and the renaissance of ceramics in art and design today. The exhibition explores how artists and designers are reviving interest in ceramics through collaborations with industry that enhance and sometimes subvert the industrial process. Object Factory presents works created for leading manufacturers as well as artworks by independent artists and designers. Both non-functional and functional works are highlighted, as are important technological advances in ceramic material that allow for its use in electronic appliances, cutting implements, and other surprising products.
The exhibition was curated by acclaimed ceramic artist and designer Marek Cecula and is accompanied by a 120-page, fully illustrated catalogue published and distributed by the Gardiner Museum, Toronto.
