The SAC International Crafts residency supports the work of an international artist working in a craft medium. In 2009 it has been awarded to ceramicist Johannes Nagel.

Nagel is currently based in Halle, Germany.¬†Within his ceramic practice he employs various making methods such as throwing, hand building and casting to explore a “vague’ idea of the vessel and what it can contain.

He intends to use his residency to explore and develop this work further, experimenting with sand casting techniques on a large scale.
