012_CLAY is an exhibit that traces the journey by two Winnipegers, Lane Delmonico Gibson and Chloé Carpenter, to La Borne, France. Under an apprenticeship with ceramist Agnès Chapelet they were introduced to ‘la vie du pot’ or life of the pot - from conception to exposition to usage. These tools, experiments, pots, photos, and journals come together as a means of communication - to tell the year-long story as pottery apprentices in France. This exhibits re-examines pottery as a sub-culture of design practice in which the creator is directly implicated. Imperfections of handmade tools and irregularity of the fire, reveal craftsmanship/design as a humbling process of making.
