“Shaped by Nature: Ceramics and Prints in Dialogue with Nature” is an exhibition where two distinct yet interconnected worlds of art converge. This collection explores the profound connection between art, nature and the human experience through the juxtaposition of low-fire ceramics and multimedia prints.

Join us on this tactile and visual journey, where the beauty and resilience of the natural world intertwine with the creative expressions of human hands. As you immerse yourself in “Shaped by Nature: Ceramics and Prints in Dialogue with Nature,” may you find solace, hope, and a renewed connection with the world that has shaped us all.
