Exhibition Clay by Studio 14 will be open in the attic gallery of the Estonian Children’s Literature Centre until October 24th.  

The exhibition features pottery and ceramics from both Estonian and Russian ceramicist that explore the possibilities provided by the plasticity and versatility of clay as material. Visitors can enjoy original ceramic works from Olga Afonina, Maria Aprasidi, Tiina Kaljuste, Natalya Lapteva, Natalya Lepihhina, Anna Malchenko, Liza Melnik, Aleksandra Shalashova and Dmitri Turbasov.

Dimitri Turbasov describes his relationship with the material on different stages of the creative process: „All of my works represent a dialogue with the material, no matter which one. If you listen to the material the dialogue will run smoothly. When you don’t show it enough respect, it will let you know soon.”

Studio 14 is an International studio that creates puppet art, ceramics, sculpture and graphics and operates in Estonia. The manager of the studio is the curator and art scholar Tatjana Mohryakova.
