Swiss ceramicist, Jacques Kaufmann creates sculptures that are borne out of his fascination with the raw material, the process of making and the relationship between material and space. His first exhibition in London comprises over seventy works in stoneware, porcelain, slate and mixed clays that were made between 1990 and 2018. He views the goal of his work as being the experiment that occurs during all processes involved, including firing and post-firing interventions. The unexpected events that can happen in the kiln results in what he deems a gift, offered by the material, beyond the will.

For me, the imaginary is originated in the material, in its qualities and in its poetical energy. I belong to a line of artists who questions the limits: those of the materials as well as those of the cultures I meet.” - Jacques Kaufmann
