From Module 7:
The Muong’s Cultural Museum, Muong Studio and Module 7 cordily invite you to the Showcase of Muong Ceramic.
Since Ly – Tran Dynasty (from the 11th to 12th century), Vietnam has been well-known for its tradition of ceramics with many products of white, celenon, brown, and blue salt glaze. Nowadays, ceramics is an arts language and material to some artists. Their recent works have gone beyond the traditional design, performances, and senses.
Muong Ceramics is named after experimental pottery, and this is the result of hard work by two artists with the same name of Hieu. Traditional materials like clay, water, glaze, ash, and hand-building techniques are used to create Vietnamese ceramics works.
Muong Ceramics is a product of Muong Studio of Ceramics, an Arts Centre at the Muong’s Culture Museum. In collaboration with Module 7, these works will be exhibited with interior products, that are designed and made in traditional craft villages and held long-standing cultural values of traditional artisanal know-how with a resonance of modernity.
Muong Studio of Ceramics was opened in September 2014 for Vietnamese and international artists participating in the artist-in-residency program. Muong Ceramics with initial pottery works, is an prerequisite for a huge Workshop of Artistic Ceramics in 2015. The workshop will gather many international artists from Asian Ceramic Network to collaborate with Vietnamese artists at Mường Studio.
This event is made possible with the generous support from Module 7.
