A significant exhibition of contemporary Danish ceramics has gone on show in a Brighton home.

Artist Kay Aplin curated the work of 16 renowned Danish ceramicists and is using her own house as a gallery to display it.

IMG_3476The exhibition, which forms part of the Artists Open Houses festival, is taking place at The Ceramic House, Ms Aplin’s well-known Brighton home.

The Ceramic House, itself an art installation dedicated to architectural ceramics, won the Best House award at last year’s Artist Open Houses festival.

This year’s special exhibition, Fantastic Tales, goes a step further with a themed collection.

Among the artists exhibiting are British Ceramics Biennial 2013 prize nominee Malene Hartmann Rasmussen, Copenhagen Artists Association Artist of the Year 2013 Pia Lund Hansen and Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art lecturer Karen Harsbo, who also had work on show at last year’s British Ceramics Biennial.

The exhibition is being supported by the Danish Embassy and the University of Brighton has asked two of the artists to give lectures.

The idea for the exhibition came from a residency that Ms Aplin spent at the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre in Denmark last year.

The product of that residency, and a second one at the centre this year, are two large friezes, Botanical Structures I and II, one of which is on show at The Ceramic House.

The other is being displayed upstairs at The Regency Town House in Brunswick Square, Hove, as part of the Open Houses Open Exhibition.

Fantastic Tales at The Ceramic House is open weekends until Sunday 25 May.

Further details of the exhibition and a full list of the artists can be found on the Ceramic House website.
