On Friday, October 21, 2022, as part of the social studies ITS, we visited and took a closer look at the
exhibition Ceramics in Slovenia 2005-2022 in the KGLU gallery in Slovenj Gradec.
The earliest ceramics made by humans were pottery objects (pots, vessels or vases) or figures made
from clay, either by itself or mixed with other materials, hardened and in fire.
Clay is one of the few modern sculptural materials to provide a good illustration of the desire for
expression with nature and a connection to our ancestors. It’s a fine art material that can be used to
make both sculptures and functional products. It can also be used for the most modern artistic
realisations such as art objects.
At first we thought that the exhibition would not be anything special, but at soon as we walked into the
gallery, it positively surprised us because of the variety and uniqueness of the sculptures.
We really liked the whole exhibition, as it stood out from the ordinary and offered us new possibilities
for perceiving art.
The ceramic "menstrual cups" caught our eye the most because of their melting appearance and their
deeper meaning, which represents female fertility and brings a new life into our world…
“The process of designing sculptures and other objects in ceramic – as far as the field of art is concerned
– should not be understood merely as conserving traditional processes such as adding and removing
clay, modelling it and placing it into molds, painting and decorating techniques.” - Damir Globočnik

We are a team of 24 students trying to find out who we are or who we would like to be. We are trying to understand what is happening around us and figure out what the world has to offer us. On this page, we want to share with you what catches our eye and also try to open your eyes to see this world from another perspective.
