Throughout history, the amphora has been persistently reimagined in the hands of contemporary makers. So, what is the amphora of today, and what is its significance?

Twenty ceramic artists have been invited to reinterpret the classic vessel, exploring it as an object of utility and connection to the human experience. From its most foundational use as a container and links to trade, to its function as a highly decorated, ceremonial object full of expression and storytelling, the amphora will be explored for its tangible connection between art and life. Theses new jugs will speak to the ideas and practices of our time, as they have since antiquity.

Artists: Alfred Lowe, Andrei Davidoff, Ara Dolatian, Claybia (Cassandra Chilton & Molly O’Shaughnessy), Danielle Thiris, Glenn Barkley, Isadora Vaughan, Janet Fieldhouse, Juz Kitson, Kate Jones, Leon Zhan, Megafauna Studio, Minaal Lawn, Nicolette Johnson, Rona Rubuntja (Hermannsburg Potters), Vipoo Srivilasa, Virginia Leonard, Yoko Ozawa, Yuro Cuchor
