Austrian pottery market in the city of ceramics - Gmunden
Rathausplatz 1, 4810 Gmunden
GMUNDEN - Austrian Pottery Market
Every year, during the last week-end of August, 130 ceramists from all over Europe meet up in the Ceramics Town Gmunden, on the lake Traunsee. Thus they make the town a meeting point for ceramic works and ceramics art. They change therefore the Town Hall Square and the charming Esplanade along the lake into a stage for the European pottery élite.
The Verein zur Förderung europäischer Keramikkünstler (Association for the Promotion of European Ceramists) always aims to preserve the long successful tradition of the Market and points to a continuous growth of this event, as far as its quality and international echo are concerned. The Austrian Pottery Market belongs to the Top Ten of the most important events on ceramics in Europe.
Achievement due to those many people engaged in the realisation of the Market, to historical reasons and to the fact that the Töpfermarkt belongs to the image of the Ceramics Town and to the identity of its inhabitants.
Here you really feel welcome - the exhibitors agree - they truly take care of you and hold you in high esteem. It is visible that the people in charge and the whole town actually live for this Market. “In Gmunden each and every single exhibitor is important, which makes us very happy”, so an aficionado exhibitor.
Some exhibitors have been coming for years, but every time there are always new ceramists to be discovered. The people in charge have been guaranteeing the high quality of the Market, choosing very carefully each participant. Thus every year they select ceramists from all over Europe, that present an ambitious mix of works and a selection of contemporary works in ceramic, of every shape and colour. This way the visitors are able to get a sense of the contemporary European ceramics scene. Thanks to the participation of international guests there is always the possibility of a professional and cultural exchange, among the ceramists, as well as between these and the visitors.
Other exhibitions of contemporary ceramics are on the agenda during the Pottery Market week-end. The works of both young and renowned ceramists, from Austria and from abroad, will be shown in the galleries and exhibit rooms of Gmunden.
