The Keramikpanorama is an exhibition of diverse, contemporary ceramics in the open air directly on the picturesque Lake Murten. The professionally organised event offers you the opportunity to present and sell your works in direct contact with customers.
The selection of around 100 exhibitors by a jury guarantees high quality and diversity. Two awards will also be presented: the Jury Prize and the Audience Prize. In addition, the supporting program offers the opportunity for professional exchange and meetings with colleges.
Information for exhibitors
The Keramikpanorama is juried. About 100 exhibitors are selected from the applicants for the market.
The aim is to show the visitors a great variety of expression possibilities with the ceramic materials and to cover a wide thematic diversity while maintaining the highest possible quality. Visitors will discover abstract sculptures and objects, lively figurines and archaic garden ceramics as well as functional, sometimes colorful, sometimes restrained utility ceramics made of earthenware, stoneware, stoneware and porcelain in a wide variety of styles and expressions. In short, a panorama of contemporary ceramic design.
The jury bases its selection on the following criteria:
Expressiveness, aesthetic design and technical quality of the work
The jury members for 2023 are:
Ursula Vogel completed a traditional pottery apprenticeship in 2005. She then attended the Ecole d'arts appliqués in Vevey (2005 - 2008).
With the co-founding of Décalquai (Montreux, 2007) and Goodlife Productions (Zurich, 2012), she began a formative creative phase characterized by collective collaborations with various artists and designers. She lives and works in Zurich.
Annick Berclaz, ceramicist, was trained in Geneva at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs, the Ecole supérieure d'Arts Visuels and the Ecole Supérieure d'Arts Appliqués, section création d'objets (now HEAD).
Her ever-changing work is a testament to her engagement with the contemporary ceramics, with ceramic raw materials, their transformations and metamorphosis through fire.
Ortrud Nicoloff was committed to applied art and design for decades, including as president of formforum and as a board member of the Fondation Jumelles. She transformed her original workshop as a hand weaver in Yverdon into a gallery more than 25 years ago, where she organized over a hundred exhibitions of objects made of ceramics, jewelry, glass, textiles, and so on.
Her leitmotiv: open horizons and arouse interest.
