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.
