European Ceramic Context 2010 forms part of a biennial symposium for European contemporary ceramics and glass on the island of Bornholm in Denmark.
Through comprehensive exhibitions, workshops, master classes, lectures and an artist in residence program, an opportunity will arise to discuss and present the best of contemporary European ceramics and glass, with changing biannual exposure. All 27 members of the European Union as well as Iceland, Norway and Switzerland will be participating.
This is a biennial symposium for European contemporary ceramics and glass on the island of Bornholm, Denmark.

I will take part in the student workshop programme as one of the nominated British student representatives from the Royal College of Art, U.K.

Siobhan Davies Studios + RCA MA Ceramics and Glass


Out of Practice: official website


This is a collaboration with Siobhan Davies Studios and MA Ceramics and Glass students at the Royal College of Art.

The 20 students will fill the building with their site specific works that respond in some way to the space, demonstrating a lively individual response, with each student bringing their own agenda.The architecture of the building is characterised by a fusion of old and new, tactility, sensitivity and attention to detail. These qualities are echoed in the objects and installations that have been realised by each student selected for the exhibition.

This is an exhibition which celebrates the importance of drawing across all disciplines.

Professors and course leaders at the RCA submit small drawings, which represent the ideas of Drawing as Thinking. 

(Drawings mainly used for the conceiving and unravelling of their ideas.)

This show emphasises the importance of drawing as an initial thinking tool for artists, designers and makers.

Some of the finished outcomes also feature.


I am involved in this show as one of the student exhibitors. I present small drawing pieces and Crosscurrent.

In addition, conversation was reported in an exhibition publication: Dan Fern talks to Takato Sasaki about how their work is informed by drawing, and the concept of drawing as thinking.

Dan Fern is a Professor and Head of Department of Communication Art & Design at the Royal College of Art, London.
