VOL. #2 IS OUT

About us

Fragile is a brand new quarterly magazine mainly focused on contemporary ceramics with an open look at the arts, design, high craftsmanship and the gray zone that lies between these worlds. An in-depth magazine, a catalog of images and a non-obvious idea of quality. In every issue we will interview artists and designers, review exhibits, explore companies, visit workshops,events, fairs and biennials. We will show private collections and propose a selection of works for sale. Furthermore, the gallery section will show a selection of works as a curated exhibition.

[ EDITORIAL ]

It is by now clear that we are not fanatics of a monomaniacal approach to ceramics. Ceramic arts are here to remind us of the existence of an atavistic idea of working, one which has become an anthropological more than historical fact, and this is an aspect of great importance for us. This being said, the current post-avant garde shift of the discipline finds it presented in a myriad of forms, further characterised by the situation that sees it at the same time both aristocratic and humble, ready to be transformed and certain that no other option will break its spirit. Furthermore, its essence as no longer expressible as strictly a high art or an applied art has become a paradigm for many other diverse experiences, which, with curiosity, we recognise and explore.
