The Alchemy Collection of Ceramics

in Inspiration / Crafts

Up until Sunday 4 August, Liam Hopkins (Lazerian) and his team will be installed in the Bench Self Made Gallery in Manchester’s Northern Quarter bringing The Alchemy Collection to life; a ceramic collection produced in real time. The experimental collection, based around the unique properties of ceramic slip, laboratory glassware and victorian drawing machines, will be produced on site in the gallery, culminating in an evening view open to all on Thursday 1 August.

This is the latest project from internationally acclaimed studio Lazerian, based in Manchester and set up by Liam Hopkins in 2006, which has to date produced works for the MOBOs, V&A and Habitat. Liam recently curated the Gerald and James exhibition in New York, featuring 105 of Lazerian’s Gerald dogs designed by artists including Oliver Hibert, Jimi Crayon, Tatiana Arocha and Stanley Chow.
